Education and Cobra Training – YouTube

Bearing in mind that my father got his hi school graduation for getting his pilots license, and my son said most of what he learned about computers he learned to play games better….
What do people think about the idea of using games like this to teach academic skills by increasing the players powers as he gets more abilities….effective weapons range could increase as he learns to calibrate the sights with math, range-mission times improve as he calculates fuel/weapons load optimization, handing improves with center of gravity calcs for loading etc. Moving up in rank means learning to report- communicate better….etc….

If the war scenario is objectionable a fire fighting or earthquake recovery or construction scenario could serve…….but the basic idea is to get virtual world empowerment by acquiring academic skills and using them in virtual world realistic analogies…….
