In Defense of: Video Games

I can’t remember, I may have written about video games already, but I just read an amazing post I want to, no NEED to, share. After the whole hullabaloo recently, many people are pointing to unschoolers as lazy, tv-watching, video-game-playing hoodlums.  And, we unschoolers become very accustomed to defending our non-traditional concept of the world and what is educational. I have been meaning to write about the good side of tv and video games (after all, most adults watch tv and play games. It’s just when children do it that we start to demean the practice and blame the parents). But, SwissArmyWife said it better than I ever could. This entire blog post is great, but the first part about the games is especially well-researched and well-argued. And, if you don’t already subscribe to her blog, now’s the time to do it.
