Gaming for understanding....

This is an awesome response to a child who asks about slavery.  It takes a few minutes to get into it but it is totally worth it.  Yes, yes, yes, games have educational value.

"We're not going to make it." Amazing.

(Thanks for the tip, Andrew.)

  1. I also second Nicholas that we need to focus on the learning aspect of games rather than the medium, even as the games should focus on fun rather than learning. Teachers at all levels are coming up with more and more creative ways to engage students. Games are another method, which can be incredibly effective teaching mediums when done correctly. free online pokemon episodes
