Video Game Will Help Students Learn

By Alabama Public Radio

Montgomery, AL – There's a video game that has the approval of the state department of education. The web-based, interactive program is called STAR Sportsmanship. STAR stands for Stop - Think - Act - Replay. State education officials say all of Alabama's fourth-grade students will be given access to it. Teachers will use the game to teach students how to respond to conflicts during and outside of sporting events. It's not a mandatory program, but Superintendent Joe Morton says teachers can use it to comply with the state's character education law.
