NEW YORK, NY–Nov. 20, 2014 –Triumph Learning, producer of critically acclaimed K-12 instructional materials and interactive digital tools, was named to the 10 to Watch list in Outsell Inc’s October 2014 report, The Role of Games in Education. The company was recognized for the gamification elements in its new personalized, smart practice solution, Waggle.

“Games within products like Waggle are increasingly similar to the consumer games to which K-12 students are already accustomed, and that is where they demonstrate real perseverance to achieve their goals,” said Kate Worlock, vice president and lead analyst at Outsell.

Triumph Learning’s approach to gamification in Waggle is to integrate educational games into the personalized, learning pathway for each student. Students get mixed practice in Waggle with games and eleven tech-enhanced item types, such as drag-and-drop, graphing and sorting. Students get credit for all of their activity and effort in Waggle, earning badges for meeting key milestones.

“Games are becoming a critical component of today’s classroom to engage students in their lessons,” said Aoife Dempsey, chief technology officer of Triumph Learning. “We designed Waggle with gaming elements to help students see their learning goals as more than just a grade they earn.”

Outsell, the leading research and advisory firm focused on media, information and technology, conducted desk-based research for this report, looking at blogs and mainstream press, as well as journal articles investigating the impact of games and gamification in education. The report was also formed from primary research in the form of interviews with publishers, hardware producers, games developers and creators of educational games to complement this secondary desk research.
