Can video games help kids develop in meaningful ways? How can gaming and other digital technology serve as a portal to learning about math and science?
Farai Chideya puts those questions to three experts: Jerone Mitchell, who teaches computer science, engineering and statistics at W.T. White High school in Dallas, Texas; Tara McPherson, an associate professor at the School of Cinematic Arts at the University of Southern California; and News & Notes tech guru Mario Armstrong.
Armstrong has created a program dedicated to inspiring students to pursue science, technology and engineering, called "Dream, Create, Go."
