Go gaming

By the time schools closed for the summer, data reported that half of elementary and middle school teachers said their students used digital games at least twice a week.  Numbers were higher among students struggling with reading or math.

We can safely anticipate that gaming will become even more common in classrooms this fall.

Years ago, parents were quick to complain if kids watched movies in school; I haven’t heard similar complaints about gaming in school.
