TEQ Games is setting a new bar for the new commercial educational gaming industry through an explicit understanding of how to enhance learning.
TEQ Games Tenets:
- Teach for understanding: Teaching is more relevant when students can apply what they are learning to realistic, personalized situations. Educators call this concept contextualized learning, and immersive environments that deliver interactive experiences in the context of realistic stories make learning stick.
- Story drives the learning. In order to fully engage the user, immersive learning experiences have to start with a strong, authentic narrative. The story’s value is then enhanced through digital media channels that create an interactive experience that engages at many levels.
- Rigorous testing. TEQ Games educational gaming environments go through rigorous internal testing during development. Two of the most important questions we ask are whether we are being true to the story and are we teaching for understanding. If the answer is not a definitive “yes,” we head back to the drawing board.
- Provide learning experiences that constantly challenge. Well-designed educational learning environments provide the student or learner constant challenge and goals are concrete and immediate. Our educational gaming products set successive, proximal goals that generate a feeling for students of constant accomplishment. Likewise, it provides a continuous source of feedback so that players know where they stand.
