The Video Game Debate--Bad for Behaviour, Good for Learning? Lessons in Learning
Canadian Council on Learning
In 2001, the Canadian Education Association concluded that "technology has become an accepted fact of life and education." Nearly a decade later, digital technologies continue to evolve rapidly and video games are no exception.

Increasingly though, research suggests that appropriate use of recreational and educational video games can facilitate learning and the development of important skills.
