Violent Video Games

You might wonder why this topic is in an educational blog.  Most violent video games are made for entertainment but some agressive themes are toned down and found in educational games.  This is a topic, however, where there is no concensus.  The study in this article was based on data from Singapore and discovered that children who play video games at a young age show more aggression when they are older.  Teachers should be aware of conflicting research but a good habit to have to preview games you use in your classes.
