About the Education Arcade
The Education Arcade
explores games that promote learning through authentic and engaging play. TEA's research and development projects focus both on the learning that naturally occurs in popular commercial games, and on the design of games that more vigorously address the educational needs of players.
The New York Times Magazine
for September 19 has a lengthy article about New York City’s Quest to Learn school
, an experimental public secondary school that organizes learning around games and other 21st century literacies. The school was founded by our colleague Katie Salen of the New School’s Parson School of Design. (Katie is one of the co-authors of the Ed Arcade’s Moving Learning Games Forward
, available here.)
