Do you have children? Do they play computer (console) games?
I run a teacher training company in South Wales (we run the INSET days that give you an extra day with your young 'uns every now and again) and had an interesting debate today with two of the head teachers I am currently working with. As an avid gamer of 20 years+, I believe that games can be educational; they teach strategy and develop lines of thought, can help children to understand issues and morality, and lead directly on to ICT capabilities.
However, the two heads both said that computer games are the scourge of modern education, and are heavily responsible for declining standards in reading.
Which side of the debate do you support?
