Click the link and read the study: How Blogs, Social Media, and Video Games Improve Education, by Darrell M. West, Vice President and Director of Governance Studies at the Brookings Institution. The paper examines how blogs, wikis, social media, mobile devices, and video games are impacting education. West finds that these tools offer “new ways for participation, engagement, and collaboration to take place.” We were thrilled to see our partners at iCivics and Filament Games got a shout out, as well as our friends at Quest to Learn. It’s a thrilling time to be in education, and we’d love to hear what you’re doing with your students along these lines.
