What makes your games educational?
Our games focus on the areas of art and design, science, language and social skills, and numeracy with higher order skill outcomes of creativity, design, critical thinking, personal reflection, collaboration, communication, planning, resource management, problem solving, and strategy.
What skills do your games help develop and why are they important?
Our games are chosen for specific skill building content inherent within them. The player will enhance their ability to follow directions, think critically and strategically, manage their resources, complete tasks under pressure, investigate more options, work through a trial and error process, make decisions, and be creative.
Who decides if a game promotes a particular skill?
We are experts in Game Based Learning, Game Development and Publishing – we publish compelling games with measurable educational benefits. Our team consists of directors, researchers, professors, and innovative entrepreneurs in the fields of games based learning, game technology, primary/secondary/tertiary/home education, management, finance, sports training, design, psychology, multimedia development and technology, and more.
We are developers, educators, and consultants evaluating compelling games that have existing or latent educational potential. We rate and categorize the learning outcomes using a consistent framework and provide an educational wrapper to assess the learner over time, in order to provide demonstrable value to both the child and their parents. Our core belief is that the right games used in the right way can make a significant contribution to improving learning.
What is a bundle?
A bundle is a set of games that cover one or more skills areas. If there is a specific skill set the player wants to work on, then a bundle of games in that specific category (art & design, science, numeracy, language & social) should be purchased.
What do I get for my money?
You get some great games! Fun games that can enhance higher order skills like creativity, design, critical thinking, personal reflection, collaboration, communication, planning, resource management, problem solving, and strategy. You also get a personal tracking system to monitor progress in each of the four main categories (art & design, science, numeracy, language & social).
What does a KNeoPACK do?
We tap students’ strengths to bridge skill gaps and encourage learners to push their own boundaries through the use of multi-dimensional games.
How do I know if my child is learning something important from your games?
Our proprietary tracking system monitors your child’s progress and provides a clear dashboard to present progress in each of the four main categories over time (art & design, science, numeracy, language & social).
There are also many studies that have proven the power of games for learning. You can read some articles on our Twitter account or you can watch the student’s strengths grow right in front of your eyes by letting them play.
