Universities bring video games into classrooms

Doug Thomas, an associate professor at the University of Southern California's Annenberg School for Communication, is developing a game for students ages 10 to 12 that aims to teach ideas and skills not found in traditional textbooks.

"Because games are experiential they might be good at teaching things that you learn through experience, and that are difficult to teach through books," Thomas said in an interview.

The story is too old to be commented.
