Fostering A Love For Learning Through Game Mechanics [Future Of Gaming]
PSFK spoke about the Future Of Gaming with the founder of DimensionU, an interactive online gaming platform and learning resource intended to help students in grades K-12 hone their math and literacy skills.
The PSFK consulting team has noticed that educators are building game experiences as way to create an intuitive and engaging environment for players of any skill to deepen both their knowledge and understanding of a wide-range of social and academic topics.
One company operating in this space is Dimension U– a web-based, interactive gaming platform and learning resource intended to help students in grades K-12 hone their math and literacy skills. Students use the platform to access 3D multi-player educational video games which connect them with friends and allow them to compete in games and collaborate while learning. Leader boards track individual performance, and tokens can be earned for correct answers, which can be used by students to purchase virtual assets to enhance their in-game characters. Periodically, the platform will host contests which offer real rewards. Students may elect to challenge other students around the world, form online study groups, or play individually. PSFK spoke with Nt Etuk, Founder and CEO of DimensionU.
