The Gamer Who Became Me
Lobuts, John, Jr.
Simulation & Gaming, v42 n3 p359-371 Jun 2011
This autobiography is an attempt to write and share the author's personal story, first as a learner, then as a teacher. It also attempts to share the educational gifts initially bestowed and then passed on from one generation to the next. The writer will talk about how games and simulations were first inherited and learned, then employed in teaching, and subsequently disseminated to the next generation. The role play, games, and simulations are but a disposition to the love affair, passion, calling, and ideal that the writer calls education, with simulations as a hallmark to the process.
