           Ryan Rogers, University of North Carolina Chapel Hill, NC

ABSTRACT  
This article provides guidelines for using video games as a teaching tool in broadcast journalism classrooms.  
The article first outlines literature concerning video games and learning then relates these concepts to 
a broadcast journalism classroom.  Practical uses for video games in broadcast journalism courses are 
discussed within the framework of specific course objectives.  Video games may provide unique teaching 
opportunities in broadcast journalism courses and help students adapt to an evolving newsroom but they 
are not appropriate in every instance.
