How to make an educational game that doesn’t suck

4 things to consider when designing games for learning

Designing games is tough.

1. Less is more: Teach one thing and do it well

2. Meet them where they’re at: Use game genres kids already play

3. Follow their lead: Design for kids by letting them do what they want to do and letting them learn what they want to learn

4. Communicate early, and often: Carefully design feedback
