The majority of Americans know little about civics and government; video games could prove the unorthodox solution to our miseducation. This is the topic of Professor Lien Tran’s second op ed as a Public Voices fellow with The OpEd Project.
On February 4, 2023, New Thinking magazine published her op ed entitled “The Game of Life: Leveraging Tech for Civics Education“.
Educators and caregivers tasked with raising and shaping young people should consider the enormous potential of games, which can transform knowledge, awareness, and perspective on all sorts of societal issues.
According to @LienT, video games could be the key to solving America’s failing civic education.#education https://t.co/9sGmdv79Iv— New Thinking (@newthinking_mag) February 4, 2023
