The Education Arcade



An important area of the Education Arcade's effort is trying to focus more attention on the development of games literacy education at a high school level with a particular focus on projects and programs which give kids the skills they need to design their own games.

The Education Arcade represents a consortium of international game designers, publishers, scholars, educators, and policy makers who are exploring the new frontiers of educational media that have been opened by computer and video games.

Our mission is to demonstrate the social, cultural, and educational potentials of games by initiating new game development projects, coordinating interdisciplinary research efforts, and informing public conversations about the broader and sometimes unexpected uses of this emerging art form in education. In short, we want to lead change in the way the world learns through computer and video games.
