Game-based learning

If your kids are spending the summer gaming, take a tip from your child’s classroom teacher: suggest game-based learning.

Game developers have learned how to weave a fictional story-line underneath facts. Although some content takes liberties with history or other facts, gaming can expose kids to people and places they’d never discover on their own.

After playing, perhaps they’ll even want to dig deeper about Ancient Rome or the Pony Express!
