Teaching Win: Teach with Portals


----------------

You can’t help but smile if someone says they’re going to use a video game to teach physics. Of course, with Portal 2, you actually could provide a much more engaging lesson in some of the more dull aspects of one of our core sciences. So Valve software have created an educational GLaDOS Teach with Portals.

It is now available to (legit) educators in an effort to spur on the education of a younger generation, through a medium where they are not only comfortable but are enthusiastic about.

Right now, it’s only available for physics and maths lessons (makes sense) but it seems there are plans for a wider scope of teaching – including Chemistry and even languages!

Read more about it in Geekosystem’s post, or see the Teach With Portals site.

  1. The gamification of education isn't exactly a new thing. Its a great step to get students really engaged in the material and has real proven benefits with retention as well.
