Here’s Why We Need Video Games In Every Classroom

I found this article from MindShift’s Facebook page.  I highly recommend “liking” their page.  They post a lot of great articles about ways games and technology are transforming education.

The article states that, “…video games can move us away from an educational culture that’s driven by extrinsic competition and commodified rewards. Instead, video games can move us toward a culture of intrinsic motivation, self-reflection, and mindful interaction with the world.”  

Is this giving video games too much credit?  I don’t know yet…
