What Teachers Really Think About Game Based Learning

What Teachers Really Think About Game Based Learning | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it

WeAreTeachers, an educational resource website, have released the results of a survey of 309 K–12 classroom teachers from public, private and religious schools across the country about their views on game based learning. We thought the results were very interesting, especially the statement ’81% of teachers feel students are more engaged when they are playing games’.
