EscapEDX: Better Than Ludus in Ready Player One!

Ludus is a planet in OASIS created . . . as the primary establishment for public education within the simulation . . . most of the OASIS public school teachers seem to genuinely enjoy their job, probably because they didn’t have to spend half their time acting as babysitters, and disciplinarians. The OASIS software took care of that, ensuring the students remained quiet and in their seats. All the teachers had to do was teach.”

No teachers telling you what to do in EscapEDX! Learning is part of the game!

Listen:

“Mental resources [are] scarce and . . . valuable, and boredom develops as this signal that mental resources are not being used . . . on valuable pursuits.”

“I would go with totally gamifying a school — things like that immediate feedback, like always having that progress bar in terms of are you learning, are you not, how do you compare with others. And I think this would achieve the short-term goal of having students learn subjects.”

-Markey, also a high school algebra teacher

Videogame Narratives Can Promote Health

“Videogames have potential for health promotion and may be especially promising when attempting to reach youth. Story immersion (transportation) is a mechanism through which a [videogame] narrative influences players’ cognition, affect, and, potentially, health behavior . [It] complements behavioral change theories, including the Theory of Planned Behavior, Social Cognitive Theory, and Self-Determination Theory.”
