A Call for Jewish Education Through Gaming and Game Design

By Owen Gottlieb

What will "Jewish" look like as today's new media evolves into tomorrow's new media? Learners are increasingly Gamers, Designers, and Builders (Tinkerers). What do Jewish educators and leaders need to know as print shifts to digital, the role of teachers increasingly becomes that of guide, and games become a new language of learning? In the secular world, Games for Learning are receiving a great deal of attention. It is a crucial time for Jewish philanthropy to turn to Games for Learning. There are those of us who have the skills to make these games a reality and want to make them happen – to bring knowledge of the learning sciences to bear on the next generation of Jewish education, but to tailor such games to Jewish subjects and audiences, we need support from the Jewish philanthropic community.
