Kids nowadays want video games with everything. Video games with happy meals, at libraries and now at schools. Some site I’ve never heard of actually took a survery of kids, which is amazing cause they probably did more work in that one instance than I do all month. The survey found
– More than half of students in grades 3 through 12 believe educational gaming would help them learn;
– Only 16% of teachers, 15% of administrators and 19% of parents are on board today — although there was significantly more support for further exploration of the potential;
– And, 11% of teachers say they’re already using video games in class, no matter how much you roll your eyes.
The solution to this problem is simple, get rid of teachers, admin and parents then we can put games into school. I only got to play one game in school and that was Oregon Trail but I learned a lot in that game. (That going outside will instantly give me malaria and Timmy is kinda like SouthPark’s Kenny, only more prone to dying.) Kids, find a way to get games as a part of your school’s curriculum! If you need me, I’ll be sitting on my butt playing Crisis Core. (What if the entire school curriculum was just video games?)
