Ali Carr-Chellman gave a talk at TEDxPSU about boys, video games, and learning. She basically says that boys, at a young age, tune out learning because of:
- Zero tolerance policies in schools that make it easy for boys to tune out school cultures,
- Absence of male role models as teachers,
- Compression of curricula, especially in the early grades.
Vodpod videos no longer available.
Her take-away: Bring gaming into the classroom. Interesting.
