Why Making Games Should be the New Push in Education

Putting aside financial rewards of having game development skills, there still is value in learning the processes of creating coding and art for video games and interactive media; it requires a diverse set of creative and intellectual problem-solving skills which intrinsically enriches those who engage in these activities.

Furthermore, with the mixture of skill-sets needed to produce many game ideas, it is necessary to collaborate with others to see projects to fruition. Requiring students to work with others collaboratively is yet another treasured aptitude worthy of nurturing among our students.
