College Algebra, Engineering Classes Get Healthy Dose of Games-Based Learning - TANYA ROSCORLA, Center for Digital Education

College professors say they rarely see their peers mixing games into classes, so a few outliers are developing their own games to help students understand complex subjects. In the first three years of elementary school, 65 percent of teachers use digital games to help students learn, according to the 2015 Speak Up report from the nonprofit Project Tomorrow. But by the time those students get to high school, just 31 percent of their teachers incorporate games into instruction. While the survey doesn't measure college game use, college professors say they rarely see their peers mixing games into classes. That said, a few outliers are developing their own games to help students understand complex subjects including algebra and engineering. http://www.centerdigitaled.com/higher-ed/College-Algebra-Engineering-Classes-Get-Healthy-Dose-of-Games-Based-Learning.htm
