  • What ever happened to good old fashioned reading? Now everything has to be turned into a video game to appeal to the lowest common denominator.

  • The number of backwards thinking people in comment section of an account that deals with future is astonishing… the fact is, that kids (who are not necessarily mature enough to understand the importance of education for the sake of education) either read their homework due to fear of some form of punishment, or they don’t read it at all. Gamification is simple psychology and if it can be used to solve a problem, why is it bad? Should we go back to the middle ages because people didn’t spend all day staring at screens?

  • This is actually a great idea, assasins Creed does a great job at accurately portraying significant historical figures and periods. if schools would take that same approach towards their curriculum while rewarding student development the same way games reward progression, then students would be far more invested in their education, find gratification in learning, and further seek to gain knowledge. Credits instead of levels. Experiencing education instead of reading publications. I truly believe this should be the future of education.
