Video Games

For this unit, my classmates and I explored video games and their potential purpose in the classroom. We read an article by J. Gee about fundamental principles that video games bring to the classroom. We also read articles on our own, the one I chose to read was one regarding the difficulties of incorporating video games into the classroom. During my exploration, I played two different games. One based on urbanization and another depicting the Great Gatsby. I have attached the links to my blog posts, which explore and show insight into my thoughts about the games played. Overall, I feel video games can be important to a student’s learning if incorporated into the classroom well.
