Violent Video Games are Exemplary Teachers
Another paper is being published this month again exploring the increase of agression caused by Violent Video Games !!they realized that video games use the same techniques that really great teachers use.
"That realization prompted us to ask the question, 'Should we therefore be surprised that violent video games could teach aggression to players?'" said Doug Gentile"We know a lot about how to be an effective teacher, and we know a lot about how to use technology to teach," said lead author Douglas Gentile. "Video games use many of these techniques and are highly effective teachers. So we shouldn't be surprised that violent video games can teach aggression."Because video games were found to be such effective teaching tools, the Gentiles propose greater educational use of today's smarter technology found in those games -- technology that "thinks" along with students, adapting instruction to each student's current skills, strategies or mistakes.They say technology slows down for no one. I know it outruns my wallet. I figure its because my wallet isn't light enough yet.

Didn't they do some study sometime ago stating youth violence has decreased over xx years because video games became that release of aggression or whatever?
