    Can gaming-based simulations be used to increase engagement and learning in the K-12 classroom?

      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.
