The Tribune Democrat, Johnstown, PA – CTC touts video games to teach math, science

Maybe its Spring Break Fever, but I keep finding resources for Dan Pink’s “play” aptitude from AWNM.

This Pennsylvania school district is looking at implementing video games into their curriculum with the goal of enticing kids to study math and science.

In a partnership between New York University and Microsoft, the initiative known as the Games For Learning Institute (G4LI) has been gaining steam across the nation.  Basically they are looking at developing video games that will teach.

Although the focus of G4LI remains with middle school students, I can see the efficacy of implementing this program across all ages.
