writing has a negative impact on the brain, we tend to forget things

Every form of new media had a rocky start

including video games

recognition for books is much higher than for video games

The video game industry is larger than the film industry

10,000 hours playing video games

5,000 hours reading

Games are the new books

one area where they have trouble catching on

In the classroom, we think that we can increase productivity but pushing more and more content at students, Kids are playing enough at home, why should they play in the classroom, It's increasingly hard to get the attention of kids

a huge difference between entertainment games and learning games

Games are not a substitute for books

they serve different purposes

..and Teachers are key
