Gabe Zichermann @ TEDxKids

For a long time games were considered a time-waster or a distraction from more serious pursuits like school or study. But science is finding, in multiple fields, that games contribute far more positively to the development of modern day kids than we previously believed.

Gabe Zichermann’s TEDxKIDS talk illustrates the evolution in our thinking about gaming, the distance the current adult culture is from the emerging youth culture, and introduces a number of key themes from more recent studies that show a number of remarkable benefits that gaming is producing in our kids’ brains.
