A Washington school district is leveling up with games-based learning to engage students in the classroom. While teachers have been using games in one-off classes, Tacoma Public Schools is slowly expanding their use throughout the district. “Everybody knows the kid that’ll stay up till 2 in the morning if you let them. They’ll just play the same game trying to beat a level or get to the next level, and they’ll do that nonstop,” said Michael Farmer, the district’s director of instructional technology. “If we can tap into that and get that kind of focus and dedication for learning, think what our students would be capable of.”
