Behaviour Game Produces Positive Classroom Results

A game for young students being played in Winnipeg schools is reducing disruptive behaviour, and it may go a long way in preventing mental illness later in life, CBC's Nahlah Ayed reports. The game, which mixes competion and positive reinforcement, is meant to help students develop self-control. Teachers say they've seen big changes since the game was introduced to schools in a pilot project in September. more

Wow, this sounds fascinating. Human behavior studies are so wonderful because of things like this. They allows us to see patterns, which in turn allows us to find effective solutions. It sounds like the change for these schools has been really drastic. But, more importantly, the effect on the students will be life-changing. Literally, as it says it can reduce mental illness later in life. That is truly incredible.
