DailyDirt: Teachers, Pay Attention

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Great teachers aren't exactly a plentiful resource, but the market for teachers hasn't quite minted many millionaires from the scarcity. But maybe that will change soon. There are a bunch of projects that are aiming to create innovative educational tools, and some of these efforts could be hugely profitable in the future. Perhaps those who can, will teach. By the way, StumbleUpon can recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

    More like the only part of the game he truly enjoyed playing was the shooting gallery mini-game, which is (as far as I know) the only part of the game that was like a traditional video game

    The game is supposed to teach things like planning and resource management, but he was only interested in the part that required mostly mindless clicking.

    Don't get me wrong, I loved fast action video games too, but the point is that the game wasn't hooking the kids like the designers intended. Sure, some probably liked it, but many just saw it as computerized schoolwork.
