The challenge

Gaming is an elemental part of young people's lives, and the benefits of play-based learning have been well-documented. Learning can and should be fun, and this Spotlight seeks practical examples of solutions that bring the benefits of gamification to upper secondary education.

The solution

This Spotlight will identify 10-15 innovations using a gamified curriculum that have achieved both scale and impact. We invite all innovations in the field to help us deep-dive into the intersection of learning and digital play as careers in tech surge and video games cement themselves as the defining entertainment medium of our time.

This call is for you if you tick these boxes:

  • Your innovation is geared towards upper secondary students, specifically students from marginalised groups aged 16-25.
  • Your innovation fosters mental health, belonging, and empathy - and offers a curriculum that focuses on the fostering of whole individuals rather than just technical skills.
  • It fuses physical and digital - your curriculum has established a meaningful way of combining in-person and online/digital learning. 
  • Your curriculum is steered for formal or non-formal education; for example, after-school programs, apprenticeships, and practical trainings.
  • Your innovation bridges the gap between education and working life, especially in the gaming and entertainment industries.
