I have been working on a paper for the Education Market. The paper talks
about using video games as a teaching tool for children with learning disabilities.
The age demographic would be 8 to 18. Games could be up to the teacher or
student to select. Games might include soccer, football, basketball, etc.
Students could learn about various historical or fictional characters and create
them as players for their team. It would allow the student to study history,
philosophy, religion, sports, popular culture, etc. and then create the characters
to be a part of their team. The students would even be able to play alongside
their created characters.
On some of the teams historical figures like Martin Luther King, and Abraham
Lincoln will play on the same team with authors like Ernest Hemingway and
William Shakespeare, or Elvis Presley and Tupac Shakur.
The process is meant to be a simple and fun way for kids to learn subjects
such as world history, literature, poetry, art, music, science and vocabulary.
Maybe PS4/XBOX machines might be donated or discounted to schools for
these classes. More on the paper as it is fleshed out. Enjoy the simulations.
Also for sentimental reasons, some fallen friends and family are on this team.
Semper Fi. May you rest in peace.
