Gear Learning believes that videogames offer the potential to terraform the landscape of videogames building a reciprocal communal process of learning while playing. In this exploration of Educational Videogames, we learn that there is an active pedagogical model built into the structure of Gear Learning games; one that directly posits an ideology of student-player-first experience. It is in this educational framework that we begin to direct the EVG revolution sweeping into our classrooms, understanding that videogames offer a unique position to provide a learning experience that posits a virtual literacy through immersion, and one that creates an openness in both the world development framework for both educational game companies and the students ability to both problem solve and problem seek so that partnered together, educational institutions and videogame companies can create opportunities to tackle the real-world ‘monsters’ our Student-Players face.
