CGMagazine February 2015: The Education Issue 1

February 2015

This latest issue of CGM looks at how education and games aren’t necessarily mutually exclusive. The perception of education has been changing a lot in recent years, and it’s no longer considered a simple matter of memorizing facts for a test, then disposing of that information once the test has been passed. Critical thinking, problem solving skills and the ability to analyze and improvise are all considered valuable tools, not just in learning, but as general skills for life management. In this issue, Tim talks about the resurgence of female super heroes in comics, Reid talks about how videogames can inspire creativity and Liana discusses how videogames can be used to teach as well as entertain.
