Gaming Goes to College

NOVEMBER 30, 2011

As we here at iCivics know, video gaming is about a lot more than just pressing buttons while sitting in front of the screen.  Games can and are powerful teaching tools.  According to "Colleges' Latest Thrust in Learning: Video Games" in USA Today, games are making their way out of dorm rooms and into classrooms. Professors are introducing games in classes ranging from engineering to forensic investigation to medicine. The article mentions iCivics' resources for younger students and their teachers.  We're excited to see that game-based learning is growing up!
