20 Serious Games For School
Rather than being designed for entertainment, serious games are made with a specific objective in mind. In education, this includes games designed to teach students a specific set of skills or an important concept. Instead of simply placing users in a fantasy world, they are provided with real-life experiences and scenarios, making the learning that takes place within the game extremely relevant. These 20 serious games are some of the best examples of serious games that could easily be adapted for the classroom.
