The education industry is in transition - from the obvious changes being wrought at the university level to wrenching, systemic transformation at K-12 in the United States. At the same time, educators are no strangers to games and gamification -- they've long been used in the classroom. But if it's such a powerful tool, why hasn't gamification been the magic panacea that's solved all of our problems? Where is the gap between meaningful game-based interventions in education and what's happened so far? What are the bright spots, and the major roadblocks yet ahead? Join Robert Torres for this insightful look at a vision for the future of gamified education, and how we can truly leverage the potential of this powerful approach.
