– And now we all want to go back to school
Believe it or not, boring homework could soon be a thing of the past in some Scottish schools.
Forget reciting the names of muscles and bones or learning about governing bodies, PE students in the north-east of Scotland could soon be asked to play Football Manager as part of the curriculum.
According to the Evening Express, the potential plans were discussed at a meeting yesterday with the Scottish Association of Teachers of Physical Education.
Len Almond, director at Step into Health Ltd, believes playing the addictive game could help kids understand the game and the role it has in society.
While Aberdeen Grammar School PE teacher Iain Stanger said: ‘I know some schools using fantasy role games and others such as Minecraft which have the potential to enhance people’s learning.
‘I agreed with what was said at the conference with regards to trying to create the same kind of motivation as what some kids have with video games.’
Free university and Football Manager on the curriculum? Expect a mass influx of students to Scotland pretty soon.
