  • Depends on the question...

    If it's about game development and design, then yes as it will promote several fields like; Programming, Graphic Design, Animation, Creativity, and Team-Building if you set students to work in groups.

    If it's about actually gaming, my answer is a mix and here is why;
    The game must be available to all the students.
    The game must be educational.
    The game must correspond to the subject at hand.
    The game isn't used as a teachers alternative to not teach the class as the teacher should depending on the subject get involved with the students.

  • Video games are beneficial.......If it is played in moderation!

    Video games are beneficial to anyone as long as it's played in moderation for like 30 minutes to an hour a day at most with teacher supervision, of course, it can improve the student's coordination. ...
    Improves problem-solving skills. ...
    Enhances memory. ...
    Improves attention and concentration. ...
    It is a great source of learning. ...
    Improves the brain's speed. ...
    Enhances multitasking skills
    and its overall a bit of fun for the students! I rest my case.

    I give credit to mental floss for the information of the benefits of gaming check them out. http://mentalfloss.com

  • Must. Just yes.

    Video games are amazing on their own, but a video game class is even better. If a video game class is made, more students will actually be excited for school. Plus, games like Minecraft would be used for education. There is enough educational games, why cant there be a video game class?

  • Creative, yet engaging at the same time.

    The problem with most schools is that teachers teach in a way that is ineffective. Lecturing engages few, whereas video games are something most students can relate to. Hence, if you can make class interesting by incorporating a popular activity most students enjoy, who is to say that class will be more engaging and more productive?

  • Video games are truly a waste of time

    Video games are meant as something you should do on occasion or during freetime. Having a video game class at school would be taking away from what is really important which is learning. If you go to school to be educated, then video games really defeat the purpose of this.
