Now this should be an interesting news report on tonight’s BBC Newsnight:
An investigation into why children’s IQs are rising despite complaints from parents that their kids spend too much time playing video games and surfing the internet. This special report reveals that there’s some evidence to suggest that gaming is part of the reason why 21st century school children are apparently getting smarter.
That’s just a teaser as the show hasn’t aired yet, but it should be interesting to see what they have to say. If nothing else it’s a welcome bit of positive gaming news as opposed to the video-games-will-make-us-all-into-rabid-killers story we usually get.
Alas we don’t get BBC America so if any of you guys get a chance to check it out leave a comment and fill us in on some of the details.
