And Now For Something Completely Different Study Says Video Games Educational


As part of EA and NestaFuturelab's Teaching With Games project, a study published this week says U.K. teachers support the use of video games in education.

1,000 primary and secondary school teachers in the U.K. participated in the EA-sponsored study and 60% said they would use video games as an "interactive way" to motivate and engage students in learning.  The study says 91% of teachers agreed that video games have some educational benefits, including aiding in the development of motor-cognitive skills, higher-order thinking and  the ability to accumulate topic-specific knowledge.

The Teaching With Games Project is investigating the potential uses for and implications of video games in classrooms.
