High-school English teacher Jason Sellers has found a way to use video-game programming software to help his students with their descriptive writing skills. Students use sites including Playfic and Inform 7 programming software that allows users to create basic video games using natural language instead of code. "You hear a lot about gaming and engaging kids in STEM [science, technology, engineering and mathematics] subjects, and I wondered, what does gaming look like in English?" Sellers said.
