Games that make the world a better place
Games Research Lab – Communication, Media, and Learning Technologies Design Program at Teachers College, Columbia University
The mission of the Games Research Lab is to design, develop and study games and game-like experiences that make a social or educational impact. Projects include the creation of digital and non-digital games for science education (e.g., games to promote sustainability and climate change education), explorations involving the use of virtual and augmented reality for education, and the use of game-like principles for better learning. The lab is committed to training and developing students’ hands-on experiences in game design and research projects so that students — as innovative technology creators and changemakers — can make an impact in society.
