Welcome to issue nine of Ludogogy Magazine – Systems Thinking
This issue looks at games that could be used to for learning around systems thinking and related concepts like Emergence and Feedback Loops. It also explores how games themselves, work as, and can be designed as systems.
This has proven to be a particularly inspiring topic for our contributors, so be prepared for a really thought-provoking journey through a variety of perspectives, with plenty to get you thinking about possibilities for your next games-based learning experiences.
