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.
