Tomorrow’s Kids, Today.
We love what happens when hearty portions of game and play principles are plated with school principals.
Quest to Learn is a new education model in NYC that believes “students of all sorts can and do learn in different ways.” At the center of their lives is a steady diet of innovation, digital media, and play.
Sayeth the brilliant minds:
“Quest supports a dynamic curriculum that uses the underlying design principles of games to create highly immersive, game-like learning experiences for students. Games and other forms of digital media also model the complexity and promise of “systems.” Understanding and accounting for this complexity is a fundamental literacy of the 21st century.
Games work as rule-based learning systems, creating worlds in which players actively participate, use strategic thinking to make choices, solve complex problems, seek content knowledge, receive constant feedback, and consider the point of view of others.”
