How to Invest in Game Based Learning
"a few multi-billion dollar players, a long buying cycle, selling costs, a byzantine decision-making process, demand for curriculum and standards alignment, requirements for proof of effectiveness, and a need for professional development”–the game-based learning space, which is still in the formative stages of technological evolution, is clearly a sector fertile for investing."
"Certainly game-based learning presents both opportunities for profit and for improved teaching and learning. Scalability alone is an argument for the implementation of more games in schools. Games have the potential to increase accountability in the area of process rather than in the narrow and often limited area of quantifiable outcomes. In other words, more quality educational play-time is preferable to more testing, measuring, and evaluating."
