    I like the idea of gaming as reinforcement of a lesson but not the lesson itself. If this was a tool to study and explore the cultures, history or science being taught I think it would engage students in a way they would really enjoy. If this was the whole lesson, I would bet that the facts would not stick around for very long.

    There is not anything that doesn't have a computer in it. Radios, TVs, airplanes, traffic lights, telemarketting, telephones, and even some billboards have a computer in it.

    I laugh all the time at how Hollywood idjits say that computers and internet are all just waste of time -- Yet, TV networks are what really made the internet... And if they like being infront of people -- They need to respect the net. Pissed off that no one wants to watch their crappy movie, and would rather play video games... Making up stories about destroying mind and principles of youth; all though Harold and Kumar can get a infant on crack and all is ok... The internet knows who makes speculations against the net.
    Art spawns imagination... Imagination that leads to stories and innovations. Video games is just full of art and imagination. Almost every single concept of science started as fiction; started as just a dream and only a idea. Video games focus into that aspect. Inspiring imagination and teaching procreation of logical analysis.

    Sorry, Hollywood... Your movies and stories are cute, but thats all they are. Without people putting momentum into future with other methods of inspiration... We are just dead in the water.

    More schools should find methods of teaching that are renovating. I personally think schools should be shorter, two hours a day and during that two hour time the student only learns one subject; Each day would be a different course subject. Gives more freedom to the kid and also allows a lot more focus inside that subject, instead of minute intervals of a subject that is later forgotten as something more interesting becomes the focus of that kid on that day.
    In a humans life time... they use 5% of what they learned in school. That 5% is what the excelled in at school... It was something that the student and person enjoyed -- THUS they followed it into a career. Schools could even base its curriculum around that -- Have a school that allows a student to decide their path inside what they like. Then that 5% would actually change to 100% because people would have only learned things, they wanted too. Giving a student the ability to control whats in front of them also inspires something people always wish they had -- Too plan, too know that their choices in life effect them, too know that outcomes are set by their motives. People often wish, everything was drawn out for them -- THIS IS BECAUSE our schools have only taught us to follow directions, SO subliminally, that we expect direction in our life.

    It would be more rewarding if those same hollywood idiots wouldn't attack gaming industry, but forked endeavors into it. Instead of paying off congressmen in FLORIDA and in CALIFORNIA too try to impose on video games.

    Kinda funny, didn't GOOD just have an article on paying off congress people to veto crap.
