Education and Gaming

How does it work?

I will admit, I’ve never been a fan of video games.  But I would like to learn more about how they can be beneficial, especially for education purposes.

I found a few ideas through a search with combinations of the following hashtags on the ol’ twitter.

#education #gaming #learning

Here are some leads:

I will report what I’ve learned!  Maybe I can design some lesson plans around them or have students present on their favourite games.
