Should students be able to use educational games in school
Debate Rounds (3)
Yes the cons might be that students might be dishonest and play games that do not teach anything , yes it might be difficult to make sure everybody is being responsible online but you have to trust kids to do the right thing
Most so called 'educational' games are either not fun (like King of math (https://itunes.apple.com...)), or aren't that educational (like IQ-ball (http://www.coolmath-games.com...)).
Take minecraft for example although it doesn't teach anything it is used in many schools as an architecture project, Strategizing for combat and teaching basic materials of the world.
Or grande pre racing, It tests the brain on how fast your mind can respond to basic math facts ( http://www.arcademics.com... )
http://www.addictinggames.com...) a strategy war game would be allowed)
Minecraft doesn't teach people anything about architecture because laws of gravity don't apply in minecraft.
And testing the brain on how fast your mind can respond to stuff is not the average thing a kid would play (I know this because I'm a kid, and I'm also a kid that likes brain games and I don't like test games.)
