Video Games

Interesting story from the UK regarding the academic value of video games.
I’m not sure that GTA: San Andreas is going to be in the curriculum anytime soon, but I am willing to concede that the skills students apply to their mastery of video games can be applied to the world at large, much like skills learned in the armed services can be applied to civilian jobs.
I don’t think, though, that we’ll see US state governments spending money to investigate a skill set that is not represented on standardized tests anytime soon.
