The U.K.-based eGov monitor reports on the results of a new survey that gauges students’ attitudes toward mainstream computer games. According to the article, researchers found that three in five 11-to-16-year-olds would like to use computer games to learn in school. The study also found that younger children were more in favor of the games than older students, with 46 percent of 11-year-olds playing games every day compared with 25 percent of 15-16-year-olds, the paper said.
