There’s a school of thought that says there’s something about the nature of games that help kids learn effectively — perhaps more so than in traditional school-based learning. There’s a new public school opening soon in New York City that aims to use game design principles to create immersive, game-like learning experiences for students. Quest to Learn is a grade six through 12 school that will open its doors in the fall.
