Gaming gives lessons on future of education

Date: 22 July 2013

The Lancashire Evening Post recently reported findings from a studyconducted by Professor Don Passey and commissioned by Wolverhampton Local Education Partnership:

"Video games classes could be key to keeping more disengaged youngsters in education and help plug a growing skills gap in theindustry a study suggests.

"The work, carried out by Lancaster University's Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (FASS), shows how basing educational projects around video games can get hard-to-reach youngsters interested in learning.

"A major spin-off of that would be a pool of talented new recruits to Britain's burgeoning video gaming and effects industry."
