Joerg Hofstaetter – Video Games A Powerful Learning Tool

About the talk

A recent study shows that people (< 21) spent up to 10.000 hours on playing video games but read only 5.000 hours per year. Well, the book is dead? Long live the book, because it has never been replaced by any new media yet. Is there an opportunity for game developers and can serious video games be the perfect complement for school?
