Video games in the classroom can help teachers personalize instruction and quickly access data that can be used to inform instruction, writes Vicki Phillips, director of College-Ready Education at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. "A great educational game is not the technology equivalent of broccoli drenched in ranch dressing. It doesn't try to mask the benefits of learning behind a veneer of entertainment," she writes. "Like the best video games, educational games engage players and work with them to create a rich, integrated experience."
