Kids love the games, but do they work?
Learning games stand out as effective tools, as more than 70% of teachers say that games are effective in both getting students’ attention and assessing progress. This panel looks are at new research from SRI International and GlassLab about the efficacy of games in the classroom, and why they are changing the pedagogical landscape. It will talk to educational groups such as Justice Sandra Day O’Connor’s iCivics about how games push forward educational missions.
