A recent survey finds that nearly two-thirds of parents want schools to experiment with new ways of teaching children. But where do we begin?

With so many issues to address, some influential voices say we should look to games for inspiration. Can games reinvigorate our kids' zest for learning? Can they improve student outcomes as a result?

Dr. Barry Fishman, Professor in the Schools of Education and Information at the University of Michigan, joins Kevin in this episode. They'll discuss how games can help solve some of the biggest issues in education today and how they can help refocus our efforts on the fundamental goals of teaching and learning.
