Video Game Model

To be honest, I actually had a Grade 1 teacher who let us play video games when we finished our mental math early. Some may not agree with it but the motivation of the students in that class was always high and we worked really hard to learn our math facts. 
In addition, video games provide a huge opportunity for our students  to develop problem solving skills. While you may argue that the classroom has no place for video games, games like MineCraft are sweeping through education and becoming a new way to engage our students in a safe learning environment where they can expand their ideas and learn in a way that best fits there needs while still being a lot of fun at the same time.
