An article in today's widely read and respected game industry blog, Bruceongames, explains why teachers and schools are obsolete and past their sell by date. And how and why video games are a far better educational mechanism. http://www.bruceongames.com/
The article says: "Gaming is the optimum delivery system for giving the human mind knowledge. Because it is one on one interactive, because it creates exactly the right challenges at exactly the right time, because it can readily mix text with sound with pictures with videos, because it rewards the student properly at exactly the right time, because it is connected to the sum of all human knowledge, because it is non linear thus presenting knowledge in a more natural way, because it progresses the student at exactly the right pace and because it is connected to countless other people."
And goes on to explain: "So students wouldn't just learn more, with better understanding and more quickly. They would also be learning the right things for them and for their life ahead."
The author of the article is home computing and video game veteran Bruce Everiss. He explains "For 30 years now I have watched educators fail at trying to use gaming as a tool in teacher led education. This is because game led learning and teacher led learning are incompatible, you have to choose one or the other. And if you are making an informed choice gaming wins every time."
