Video games are created as a form of entertainment. If they do not entertain, they do not sell. Some educators have been looking at using “gamification” strategies from the video game industry to help motivate children in the classroom. As a result video games for education have become widely popular and success from Minecraft EDU to Prodigy Math there are millions to choose from. These gamification principles can be used at home as well.
