Today, September 12, is National Video Games Day! w00t! These unique holidays are fun for me. I am definitely a child who was brought up playing video games. Back then we just thought of them as fun. Today education has jumped on the gaming bandwagon though and is a great tool to help kids learn. With my own son we used a lot of various video games as part of his education. T even wrote his first persuasive essay on why video games are educational. For this week’s infographic I found a great one about how video games are changing education that I hope you will find interesting.
Be sure to checkout my Throwback Thursday post from a few weeks ago to which will quiz you on how many classic video games you can identify.
Do you remember playing games for education in school? Do your own children or grandchildren use games for learning?[signoff]
