Today’s K-12 students see games as a gateway to more personalized learning and the opportunity to develop workplace ready skills. Educators are equally intrigued with the potential of games to increase students’ engagement. Since 2003, Project Tomorrow, a national education nonprofit organization, has conducted the annual Speak Up National Research Project to collect and report on the authentic, unfiltered views of K-12 students, parents and educators on digital learning, including the use of games both in and out of the classroom. In this talk, we will share the latest Speak Up research data from over 403,000 K-12 students, parents and educators on the benefits/challenges of incorporating games within instruction – and pose provocative questions for audience discussion on the future of serious games within both formal and informal learning.
