“Stealth learning is when an instructor uses clever, disguised ways to introduce learning objectives through non-traditional tools, such as games, to encourage students to have fun and learn. Students think they are merely playing, but they are simultaneously learning.” (Stealth Learning: Unexpected Learning Opportunities Through Games by Laura A. Sharp).
