Teacher Story: Attacking Stupidity with Knowledge

STORY OF YOUR LIFE? The game boys at EdSurge HQ like to peruse gaming blogs every now and then for a little diversion from all the serious edtech news. But sometimes, one cannot escape work.

The video depicts a turn-based, role-playing strategy game where your objective as a teacher "is to vanquish stupidity from your pupils in order to improve their GRADE."
