Education:

Computer games are beginning to break out from their console and entertainment world, and finding more constructive applications in the worlds of business and education. 

Using video games to supplement and inspire in-classroom education is more and more used for pilot teachers who try out new school models. 


Pilot teachers are finding ways to use video games to enrich and inspire interest by students in core curriculum topics.


Be a pilot teacher! 

"We have been consistently impressed and surprised at how leading  educationalists  have been adapting off the shelf video games to engage their students in rich leaning experiences“.
