Here’s the developer’s mission:

“Our goal is to make aspects of classroom instruction as effective in creating persistence and involvement as observed in video game players. Our games are a result of blending video game features into instructional research in order to achieve a high rate of student learning through increased time-on-task and engagement…”

Their approach is based on these principles:

  1. Repetitious drills can be fun
  2. Students respond to challenges: errors can be viewed as opportunities to improve rather than as indications of failure
  3. Immediate corrective feedback facilitates improvement in performance; teachers and students can quickly see mistakes and how to correct them
