Solving the technical challenges to make learning fun is the specialty of Andamio Games, and its President, Adam Gordon, joins the podcast to chat about the unique infrastructure challenges educational game developers face, from funding to design to feedback. Adam shares why partnering with textbook manufacturers might not be the panacea Tim thought it would be, how to incorporate feedback from both educators and students, and what grants can do to boost your organization’s chances of success.
In this episode, you will learn:
- How to navigate multiple feedback loops
- How different generations use devices and the importance of understanding this when designing your app
- The importance of creating a sustaining revenue model not reliant on grants
- How to use game mechanics to accomplish learning objectives
