Computer and video games as a family literacy event

The Interactive Entertainment Association of Australia has released a study that has found parents are spending more time with their children playing computer games.

The report is apparently 'independent', and authored by Dr Jeffrey Brand, director of the centre for new media research and education at Bond University. IEAA members include, Microsoft, Sony, Eidos, EA games, Atari, and Activision.

I haven't read the report yet, but you can get a copy here.

interesting. I wonder if more educational content will soon work it's way into video games in the same way that Flocabulary put SAT Vocabulary Words into hip hop.

the future gets stranger everyday.
