What is The Learning Game?
The Learning Game is about promoting learning activities, with a special focus on learning games. Learning can be a fun and empowering activity for people of all ages. We focus in educational games and in all games and activities that help exercice skills like memory, creativity, strategic thinking, etc.
The goals of this website are two:
1. To increase the use of games as a different and complementary learning media
2. To contribute to the current conversation about education and its/our needs by making learning as a more enjoyable activity.
On one hand, educational games are often seen more as a toy rather than anything else, but games can be much more. They can be a learning tool, they can trigger interests, life hobbies, they can be motivators, they contribute to healthy social interactions, they can help improving skills like memory, creativity, patience, communication…
We put a special focus in 3D (3 dimensions) games rather than 2D (screens). This is so because 3D and social interaction cannot be totally encapsulated in a screen. 2D games can complement 3D learning, but never replace it as it is not the same experience.
On the other hand, we believe that learning itself could be, should be, more enjoyable. For example like learning to play an instrument, that would be a good example of enjoyable learning.
Behind all this, there is an awareness of the importance of education. In world crises, we hear a lot about helping out people, communities, countries, etc. We believe the real help is to make people autonomous: teaching them how to fish is better than giving them fish, so to speak.
Who is The Learning Game?
My name is Ferran Rabasa. I am a Spaniard from Barcelona based in Paris. For the moment I work with freelancers that contribute to creating interesting content. This page contained also a shop with games (memory games, strategy games, etc.) but we are reorganizing and thus taking a break in the e-commerce activity. For now, you will find a listing of online learning courses and materials, a short DIY Games & Learning Tools section, and a blog.
