Gaming and learning

There’s been a lot of talk about incorporating gaming into learning, and without hoping onto a soapbox, I want to affirm that I believe STRONGLY in the power of video games both as a teaching tool and as a power in the entertainment industry. With that said, I propose this: if you believe in the power a video game has to impact the life of a child, watch one (or however many) of the following videos, and do whatever you can to spread the word about this school of thought. We make the future daily through our actions – help steer it towards a future where learning can be fun again.
