Scripting Success With Game Based Learning 

Nothing engages one's mind better than games.It helps in improving the concentration level of the player.That is why game based learning is being encouraged in schools nowadays.Various research has been done in this field and it has been proven that game based learning leads to better academic outcomes.

In a research conducted by University of Oklahoma,a posttest was given to the students after playing  a Massive Multiplayer Online Game (MMOG)  for 14 class periods over a seven week period.Results that came out of this research showed that for every minute a student was engaged in playing the game, posttest scores increased .11 points.You can read about this research in details, here.
