Kids benefit from building skills that seem like a waste of time in the present, even though they’ll be incredibly valuable in the future.

Current example: Video game design
Video games seem like a waste of time, but they’re going to be a huge part of the future.

For creators, games have never been so easy create and distribute. Plus, the financial upside is huge because people are willing to pay so much for digital games.

(h/t @tweettal)
When we think of games, we usually think of leisure and escapism.

But I’m excited about the new genre of educational games that scale better than the current school system, and make learning fun for kids.

I expect games to be the linchpin of the shift towards homeschooling.
