Teachers there believe playing video games in lessons can help develop talents for art and design.
This strange decision by Taiwan's teachers may have something to do with 17-year-old Tseng Jeng-cheng. He had no qualifications but won one of the top prizes in this year's World Cyber Games.
The country's education minister Ovid Tzeng says video games can train a student's 3-D reasoning and help exercise his brainpower.
Parents and some teachers aren't so happy though. They believe video games distract students from their homework.
One parent, Wang Min-tsai says, "there are negative effects to playing time-consuming and highly distractive games."
