Junyo's Not Just Playin' Games

Jul 27, 2011

Not just playin' games: Gaming is heating up in a big way in the education world. Big-game people hunting for the next big challenge are eying edtech. (Check out upcoming gaming conferences below). Thoughtful reflections here by Grockit's Ari Bader-Natal about the role of badges (and the evolving Mozilla Open Badge program.) Then there are the moves of the peeps: Zynga co-founder, Steve Schoettler, got involved with edtech via San Fran-based philanthropy, the Full Circle Fund. He's now working on data analysis tools for the education space with a startup called Junyo. We've also heard rumors that Laird Malamed, a "Guitar Hero" hero, may take his gaming energies into edtech. Yah, join the game!
