Educational Game Designers

riskWhat do you get when you cross a successful game designer with an innovative educator?

Co.Lab

What is it? It’s an educational game design accelerator.

Sound like a mouthful? Well, it is.

Take the complexity of game design and add to it the challenge of developing innovative curricula for student learning. That’s what educational game design is all about. Throw in the challenge of raising funds to support game design and testing, along with the need for built-in metrics to assess student learning and provide designer feedback, and you’ve got quite a complex set of tasks.

What’s incredible is how passionate these folks are about what they’re doing. Listening to how they think about game design and student learning, and the ways games can foster powerful learning experiences is incredible.

Games for learning. The people who design them. Really inspiring.

When can I play?

    Thank you for keeping an ancient educator up to date with what’s going on across the pond. The game design stuff is particularly interesting and I will be passing it on to the rest of the staff. We are an accredited school with the de Bono foundation UK. Our vision is to become a world class centre for teaching and learning by 2015 which is a big ask but you have to aim high.We are open to innovative methods of teaching and learning which is why I have found your site such an inspiration.
