Redefining Homework

In this TEDx talk, physics teacher Alex Rawson talks about how we need a paradigm shift in the types of homework students are asked to do. Instead of trying to force kids into doing it, why not make it so fun and engaging that they will be eager to do it. This is the same attitude toward teaching that we try to embody in all our projects at the Ed Arcade, so we were very happy that Alex gave a shout-out to Radix! In essence, make homework exciting, authentic, and collaborative - much like real world STEM problems can be. Thanks Alex, we'll be seeing you in-game and we'll try to build some castles to seize soon!
