Digital Games that Supercharge Feedback for Learning

CameronAre there ways we can use games with learners for in-process feedback? We think well-designed games can do just that.

Have we found some that do that? Yep.

You can learn more about this kind of feedback in relation to these kinds of games in our white paper, Supercharging Feedback to Propel Student Learning.

In fact, Cameron White, Associate Director of co.lab, was on a panel at SXSWedu presenting on it today (Using In-game Data to Enhance Learning)!

    Thank you for this post and writing the whitepaper. This is such a valuable area to explore. I plan to check out Sandbox EDU, it seems really interesting.

    One game-based platform that we use at our school is DIY.org. Most students are using this for personal learning as well as for school projects (often the prior translates into the latter). It really puts students in the position to drive their own learning and interact with peers across the world with similar interests. Site moderators and peers provide feedback on student skill challenges. Though the site is still developing, I believe that it is evolving into one of the best websites/apps out there for young learners. Teachers have been serving as the sharing facilitators, feedback encouragers and help with the sense-making.
