How I Use It
Games are pretty fun and address interesting topics. Many have intense music and cool, funky graphics that lend to their playability and attractiveness to kids. The variety of games from different developers, each with different levels of interactivity and visual styles, offers broad appeal and allow teacher to branch off from normal subject into ones more interesting for the students.
My Take
Lessons are run step-by-step (kids can also watch the concept videos for more guidance). However, students di not need much in-game time to find the best solutions and began figuring out tips and tricks on their own.
