Are games useful for education? Can kids learn something useful while just playing? These are the questions from the previous episodes of this podcast. And today we’re providing our take on the answer:
Learning Factory EDU is a game that comes with scripted lesson plans where the bigger part of the lesson is about problem-solving, ideation, talking, working in groups and then playing the game to solve the actual problem.
We’re role-playing the non-game part of the lesson in this video, so you can better understand how Luden.io and Geek Teachers think about the games + learning question.
We hope, we think, that kids would get inspired by Learning Factory EDU and would want to play more educational games at home. A natural path would be a regular version of Learning Factory from Steam and maybe something from our friends at Code Combat.
Games are like books 📚 - some get you to think and explore, and some are just pure entertainment. The latter are usually more popular and more accessible, but once you get a taste for good books - you just cannot get back.
Same with games - some are more useful than others. So if your kids discover educational games in school, they’d develop a good taste and they’d want to play educational games at home.
