Educational Games That Work

The best games listen to you. Your choices matter. You have agency and the game world responds in satisfying and sometimes unexpected ways. When it's working, no medium rivals the lean-in engagement good games create. Creating that engagement and infusing it with the learning objectives and outcomes we want to achieve for our players (students), and their teachers, is at the heart of our practice.

 

Making a good game is hard, making one that teaches is harder still, and making one that makes measurable improvements in learning outcomes, while also being easy to implement in any classroom with any teacher is a really tall order. But that’s Electric Funstuff.
