The Richard Cloudsley School in London has updated its curriculum to include video games.
Why is this
BBC Newsbeat interviewed many staff andstudents who explained why such a bold step was needed. They say this encourages social interaction between students. Games at school should help children who have difficulty maintaining relationships.
Video game classes will run in parallel with traditional subjects such as math and English.
Student Jack says it will give himbeing able to play a lot with friends, and that he feels "happy" because of the increased socializing opportunities provided by the gaming class. Principal Francis Gonzalez says the video game lesson is "very important for learning" and helps students understand many things.
Now this is especially true, given that recently games have become increasingly criticized and even postpone e-sports tournaments.
