I recently watched this video and found it very enlightening. I have always liked to play video games and have been fairly good at them. I could spend hours playing before I stopped. I have never worried about what is real and what is virtual. After watching this video I am starting to get an even better understanding of what my students are becoming more and more immersed in. Video games allow people to explore who they are and what they want to become. As an educator I am having to learn to take these technologically oriented students and using that technology to help them learn and develop the necessary skills to help them when they unplug.
Are Games better than real life?
