SocietyMassCom: Video Games & Violence (W13-P3) Fa17

Screen capture from an Assassin's Creed game.

What do we learn from video games?
What do children learn from video games?   Aggression?  Violence?

To help us think about that, let's first look at some the latest research on the topic.

"Actually, violent video games don’t create violent children, study says"

If interested, you can read the original research article that the news article is based on ("Video Gaming and Children’s Psychosocial Wellbeing: A Longitudinal Study").

The news article (in Salon) does not provide context.  There is no mention of past research or other current research on violence and video games.  Let's take care of that.
