Should Computer Games Be Used for Classroom Instruction?

Should Computer Games Be Used for Classroom Instruction? | Future Focus Learning in Australian School Libraries | Scoop.it

Sue Gould's curator insight, June 19, 2:09 PM

The face of educational instruction is changing once again.  The relaxed manner in which these notes are representing important content is fabulous.  A cirle is almost complete - as a child this sort of doodling in class was stopped and a punishable offense!  Yet so many tutors, educators, and trainers are idealists and visualise while learning and observing the world around them.  It is great to see that this representation of learning is on a comeback of acceptance.
