We have all heard the arguments for or against video games being used in the classroom. While reading another board that I follow, I found this and thought it would a great topic for the community to look over. Take a look at www.explorelearning.com and tell us what you think about these games. (I'm not pushing this site, as it is a pay site) Are these a good enrichment activity for the classroom? Why or why not. I have also included a link to a White Paper on the subject.
Maybe there are a lot of things we should consider in using video games the type of lessons,the type of students,the importance of these to the lesson.We can use this as long as it is a conruent of what you are teaching
