This helps kid learn better then being able not to get help, their minds will think they are not learning but they are.

Ok, Games should not be played at all during school, because they will cause a major distraction to the student, ergo making it hard to do their work, because they were playing games all the time.

Games will allow the kids mind to think they are playing when they are learning from the games not to be distracted. Also the parents could help the kids better because the parents might not be able to help the kid because they dont know how to actually do it.

"Games will allow the kids mind to think they are playing when they are learning from the games not to be distracted. "
But they could get so hooked on the game and they might miss some important information like in Spanish learning the verb SER, or in geometry learning Vectors, you can use tutorials, where the teacher helps you with the problem. All children are entitled to go to tutorials.

some kids need more help that the teachers can't give so the games is able to show them step by step how to use it in everyday life and how it to make it easy. So this can help a lot of kids some kids that are special and need help. Plus if they really need help and cant get it in tutorials then the get it from the games.

Even if they are eductional they should not be played, because when we should use work, we cant play games. You have note refuted my round 2 argument. So that stands.

If kids play games then school becomes a lot easier for kids they can have fun and still be able to learn all of their basic needs the only things is that kids will be able to play the games and still be able to have fun. Plus kids will not have to drop out of school if they are failing or are not getting better at school so games will help them stay and school and get better grades.

When kids play games in school even if educationial games, then they will lose focus. they will make you not do your work right, they WILL make you FAIL.

During my final debate I will give voters on why you should vote for the Neg

The main reason games should be allowed at school and the reason school will be easier for kids i because school is suppose to be easy for kids education they have school so kids will be able to live and be able to use what they have from school for the real life educational games are just a way for school to help them more no matter how long they are it takes school will be able to help kids with other things then just telling them and showing because some kids need to be able to do hands on work not sitting their and copying what the teacher does. Games are apart of life and they will never leave school can use games to help kids learn different ways.( this is for kids who really need help and can understand no matter how many tutorials they go to) School helps kids also games help kids, That is why games should be allowed at school and you can change my opinion because this is something that schools should do because kids need help and cant get it. even sylvan can use it for kids so they can help the kid more.

this can help education by a lot and can help kids be more friendly, No they will be more stressed. when they found out they failed their class because they were playing a game. The reason why the negative side is more superior than the aff is because I have stated that this would only make it worse. And like I said that tudering is avalible to all students. So for all these reasons I see no other vote than the negative.

also helping students will allow them to do better with their jobs when they graduate and they can pass college.

Yes it can and even more students in school can be stressed for various reason; bad grades, stuff at home or other personnal things. Playing games at school could offer a way to let off steam with friends which in turn make the student have a better outlook on life and actually have them be more focused in school work

I do because again this build trust aloowing students to be more friendly and caring towards others and lend a helping hand. Plus Stragedy games test the mind. Games like Cilvilization the AOE games test the mind think what is the most efficent way to accomplish things. It takes promblem solving skills which is an essential tool of life

Tell me more if you think that school should allow games for educational purpose.

I believe its a good idea to play games at school because while most people think its bad, video games can actually be a tool for learning. Playing video games allows people to interact with one another; say your playing a sports game or even a game like COD or Halo you have to use teamwork to win. So this allows people to come together and work together and gain new friendships and even trust one another
