Valve has recently announced that they will be offering a cut-down version of Steam to schools. Educators and students alike will have access to this service.
However, students who are hoping to play Portal 2 will be disappointed. In fact, students won't be able to play any games through this version of Steam...
It only offers access to Portal 2's level editor and workshop. However, this is great news for everyone. For students, it allows them to be creative and apply themselves. For PC gamers, it means that younger kids will be exposed to Steam, potentially increasing the userbase of Steam and adding to the ranks of PC gamers, which can't hurt. For Valve, they profit.
It's exciting to see new and inventive ways of teaching children. Math and physics are often difficult for students, and Valve's approach looks to bring fun into these fields of learning.
Is this a good idea or simply too distracting/advanced for young minds? Let us know if you think this should happen and why?
