The Future of Education - Gaming?

"Why should anyone sit through hours of instruction about biology or anthropology or geology when, today, virtual reality video gaming technology can project students directly into the subject.

"Having fun, they can fight off invading bacteria, live in an ancient city or watch the formation of the Ice Age. They can learn more in 10 minutes of game playing than we learned in hours of classes and reading boring textbooks. Who says education has to be painful?"
