Keys to Learn 2021 – Video Games and the Virtual Classroom
Education in the new era of home learning is a challenge for both teachers and students, but videogames can help to bridge some of the gaps that were created when classrooms were largely forced online. Interaction and engagement can be difficult in a virtual classroom, but games can help to provide an immersive, engaging space that many young students already find familiar. The panelists noted that in their discussions with educators, students can be more invested in the lessons, and even feel more motivated to show up on time, when they hear their next class will take place in a game world.
Games can also help teachers with a wide range of topics, from physics and chemistry to history and social responsibility, and even soft skills, like collaboration with other students or critical thinking.
