WHEN IT FEELS LIKE “JUST A GAME”…
Kids are incredibly savvy at detecting that “school smell”: anything that carries even the slightest whiff of being traditionally instructional. This has been the Achilles Heal of too many edugames of the past, where strong teaching content met with knee-jerk rejection because of an inadequately thin “game veneer”.
Stealth learning games overcome this by making sure that they follow “kids rule number 1”: the game must first be FUN before it can hope to achieve anything else.
…KIDS CAN LEARN EFFORTLESSLY
Ever notice how quickly and easily kids soak up vast bodies of new knowledge about games they love? This is also what our games will tap into, except that in our case, instead of encyclopedic knowledge about monsters, mythical characters or weaponry, kids will learn things that actually help them in the real world!
