A VR game that teaches kids how to survive life’s challenging and dangerous situations. Think FEMA training done by Tim Burton. “Dumb Ways to Die”, but broader and more immersive.
I need to get a better name for the game. Right now I've got a placeholder of "Keep yourself alive". I hate it. I love puns, and I'm sure something more apt will come along. Suggestions are welcome.
Listened to a great podcast today about serious games, and got a great tip to make sure that the "proof points" for the ROI for investors are there from the beginning.
A report titled “Harnessing the Power of Videogames for Learning” from the 2006 Summit on Educational Games by the Federation of American Scientists found that: "Students remember only 10 percent of what they read; 20 percent of what they hear; 30 percent if they see visuals related to what they hear; 50 percent if they watch someone do something while explaining it; but almost 90 percent if they do the job themselves, even if only as a simulation."
