Gaming in schools survey

About half of K-8 teachers say digital games have become a regular and beneficial part of today’s classroom, according to a recent survey. Responses from a random sample of 505 K-8 teachers across the country indicated that 50 percent of the teachers reported using digital games in classroom instruction for at least two days a week.Eighteen percent reported using games daily. Elementary school teachers tended to use digital games more often than middle school teachers did, with 57 percent of K-5 teachers reporting using games compared with 38 percent of middle school teachers.
