Nearly half of all teachers — 48 percent — are using games in their instruction now, according to a new Speak Up research report released by Project Tomorrow. That’s more than double the percentage from five years ago (23 percent). Things are not all positive for gaming, however. While nearly half of school and district administrators indicated they had instituted some form of game-based learning in their schools, “38 percent of school administrators and 47 percent of district administrators said they have not and they have no plans to do so,” according to the report. Just 27 percent of administrators said they are providing teachers with professional development for game-based learning, while 50 percent of teachers said they are “looking for professional development to better use games within instruction” (up from 26 percent in 2012).
