Gaming to re-engage boys in learning: Ali Carr-Chellman on TED.com

Posted by: Matthew Trost

At TEDxPSU, Ali Carr-Chellman pinpoints three reasons boys are tuning out of school in droves, and lays out her bold plan to re-engage them: bringing their culture into the classroom, with new rules that let boys be boys, and video games that teach as well as entertain. (Recorded at TEDxPSU, October 2010 at Penn State University, PA. Duration: 12:30)
