Vanderbilt Study: Games Deliver Engagement and Academic Performance

A team from Vanderbilt University partnered with Legends of Learning team members on the new study “Substantial Integration of Typical Educational Games into Extended Curriculum.” Published by the Journal of Learning Sciences, the research shows students who played games as part of their regular curriculum were significantly more engaged, and outperformed their peers on both factual knowledge and depth of knowledge.

Participating teachers reported their students were more engaged, and comprehended lessons faster. To learn more about how curricula games impact students in the classroom, read an executive summary of the study.
