More teachers are finding educational uses for video games in the classroom. Games such as Angry Birds are being used in physics lessons, while others such as SimCity can help teach students about system interaction. Despite initial concerns, one educator says video games proved both educational and engaging for his students. "You can drive these lessons home within the context of a game they really enjoy ... I feel like I'm reaching these kids in ways I never was able to before," second-grade teacher Joel Levin said.
