Although technology in the classroom is evolving from computers to tablets, a new survey from the Games and Learning Publishing Council highlights that the use of games in the classroom is becoming more common and teachers are increasingly valuing the ability games have to motivate low-performing students. Survey results indicate that the majority of teachers (55%) used digital games in the classroom and they used desktop computers (72%) to play games as well as interactive whiteboards (41%).What is interesting about the survey results is that teachers reported minimal opposition to the use of games from administrators (14%) and parents (9%). These results shed some new insights into the use of digital games in classrooms.
