What Do Teachers Really Think About Games in the Classroom?
We’ve made some interesting additions to our research page on BrainPOP Educators. BrainPOP teamed up with the Joan Ganz Cooney Center at Sesame Workshop to lead a research project, Teacher Attitudes about Digital Games in the Classroom. 500 teachers nationally were surveyed for the study. Over 60 percent of educators surveyed feel that games helped increase engagement with subject-area content among lower-performing students. 62 percent report that games make it easier for them to level lessons and effectively teach the range of learners in their classrooms. Get the facts and read the full results of the study.

Hear them talk about their experiences with game based learning as they give you a firsthand look at their students’ engagement in the classroom. You’ll leave feeling inspired and ready to try out gaming with your own students!
