Can Digital Games Engage Students?
A new report from the Joan
Ganz Cooney Center at Sesame
Workshop and the Games and
Learning Publishing Council
identifies significant barriers
for games developers to enter the school market, such as
the changing policy landscape, a lack of teacher professional
development, and a need for low-cost, data-rich assessments.
With the support of a $1.5 million grant from the Bill & Melinda
Gates Foundation, the Council has launched its next phase of
activities, including analyses of game-based learning assessments.
