  • love the last slide, education is supposed to make you think. india does not have an education system, it has an exam system driven by rote.

  • Alok, a good set of slides. Your view is using games as a medium to teach. But what I was expecting before going through your slides was how to use the gaming mindset as a medium to make kids learn. Gaming + Education is not just games, it is gamification. The motivation behind playing games is competition, rewards, challenges. Gamification is an upcoming area of research and it applies not only to kids, but adults too. It is believed that real world problems can be solved via gamification. Look for 'World without oil'.
