Video games are specifically designed to keep kids engaged and working at the peak of their ability, something that classroom learning often seems to very much not be. Kathy Ceceri -- who writes about homeschooling on the All About Homeschooling Facebook page and her site Crafts for Learning, and has a new book coming out about how kids can design their own video games -- chats with Terri about a recent Games in Education Symposium she attended and what's going on in the field of learning games. Among the topics they touched on were using video games to differentiate instruction, make classroom reports more interesting (with Twitch-like videos), and encourage kids to dive into literature instead of just reading it.
