Ryan McDonough's curator insight, July 7, 2014 5:55 PM

Covering the pros and cons of gaming, at least in the minds of some educators. I've covered the pros in depth here, so I'll review the concerns here. Some feel like violence in games can be a poor influence on impressionable children. Opponents claim that kids play games at home so why should they play them at school? Difficulty monitoring online activity; funding and resource allocation are also major reasons some are apprehensive over video games in school. Do I personally agree with them? No. But I was also raised in an environment that nurtured my love for gaming. Some of these questions should merit constructive conversations at the next faculty/staff meeting.

Ken's Key Takeaway:

This looks like a nice list.  A younger version of me would definitely like the car racing spelling game.
