More to follow on this, but here are some resources to get started.
- Edutopia – Made with play, lots of game-based learning resources
- Institute of Play – teacher and students resources
- Using Portal 2 in the classroom
- Wise Ed Review – Play summit, information for educators
- Minecraft Edu
- Sim City Edu – access via Glass Lab games

This is just a list of some interesting looking resources. The great thing here is that there are many cross-curriculur opportunities for maths, english, science, languages and humanities.
This also looks useful, thanks to Microsoft.
Like I said, lots of reading and researching to be done into game-based learning. Lots more to follow soon …
Oh, and Portal 2 lesson plans and other resources here.
