I have been working with games in education since the use of game in technology started. Remember NECC? Remember how games were initially written in BASIC when we taught kids initially to write their own programs. Many moons ago. Before NCLB.

Ryan McDonough's curator insight, July 7, 2014 10:09 PM

More evidence to support how games in the classroom improve student performance and learning retention. Being user-friendly, personalizing instruction, increasing engagement, and familiarity to technology based applications are reasons cited for their effectiveness. Games stimulate the brain, grabs and focuses attention, and motivate learning through stimulation, and allowing the user to take ownership by controlling their own actions. Infographics like this are a great tool to display on your classroom website or show at conferences. There's always going to be doubters when they hear the name "games" in school.

Plethora of educational gaming sites that are geared towards elementary students. I've used http://funbrain.com and http://abcya.com before with my Kindergartners. A center-orientated system could be effective in getting kids to rotate from computer to computer, entrenching them in different subjects such as reading, writing, spelling, and math.
