    Abstract

    This paper examines the use of Serious Games in the Primary School classroom. It explores whether Newly Qualified Teachers can use Serious Games as an educational tool more successfully than their more experienced counterparts and investigates the reasons for this. The paper also examines the institutions of Primary Schools themselves to see if they can provide a suitable environment for Serious Games to be used effectively, or whether the more traditional approach to education is more effective.
