Gaming, Education, and Violence

Random selection of links I found interesting today:

First, a Washington Post article about how gaming "turns kids violent." The interesting thing is that by the end, the sensational title had lost some of its bite. Turns out, playing violent video games is but one factor that can make kids more aggressive.

Ironically, in the same day's paper comes an article touting the creativity many video games inspire.

And finally, this blog post from a VC about how traditional educational models are broken. Hear, hear!
