A story in N.Y. reports about the mushrooming uses of video games in local schools there. It has expanded to a reward for good behavior, excellent grades or classroom performance, encourage kids to take physical fitness habits into their home, and now as an activity more engaging than spending winter days cooped up in a gym.
State officials also seem receptive to video games' value to education.
