Learning and Motivation
Video games engage individuals in story lines and require their player to become proficient in complex and dynamic problem solving. They often require you to think outside the box and train individuals to seek multiple paths and exploring them fully. I question why we do not use HIGH QUALITY video games to teach every concept imaginable when they can serve as far superior means of teaching concepts--Indeed in a way that not only attaches greater personal meaning (stronger neural activity and more resilient memory) to the subject material but also provides internal motivation and learning both at the unique pace and will of the student. They also would serve excellently as alternatives (and again superior in form) to current standardized academic testing..
