As I have reviewed materials from the GamesForChange.org conference, I have become more convinced that education has a huge impact to the future of our economic future. I have also enjoyed seeing the results of “game based learning” challenges. The students in this video give me hope that the US can continue to be innovation leaders. I am blown away that these students are in middle school. Wow! I hope that I can inspire my boys to have that sort of creativity.
These students are truly exceptional. I would be interested to learn about the parents and teachers who supported these students. Whatever it is, we should try to reproduce what they are doing.
As parents, mentors, and educators, how can we create challenges in our families and communities that inspire young people to be creative and innovate?
