Publisher's Summary

Our story begins within a video game. Producer Chris Brookes takes us on an adventure that explores what video games can tell us about teaching children in school.

A psychologist looks at students who play video games and whether they then learn new technologies faster in school. How can video games be structured towards improving knowledge of math, science and social studies? That is what some video game developers and educators are working on. Combining curriculum with state of the art game software, they are testing how games can improve education and student participation in the classroom.
