          As the emphasis of the edtech startup scene shifts from digital distribution platforms to content, a new wave of entrepreneurial teams is beginning to disrupt traditional publishers' hold on the education marketplace. One emerging area of interest for designers, educators, researchers and funders is the potential power of games to help students learn in new ways. At the same time, important questions remain about how to develop high quality learning games in the face of complex design and distribution challenges. Our proposed panel brings together three companies building cutting edge learning games for an interactive discussion moderated by co.lab, a newly launched learning games accelerator by NewSchools Venture Fund and Zynga.org. Together, we would explore the importance of user feedback, methods of overcoming barriers to reaching students in and out of school, and the promise of games as a tool for motivating students of all ages and abilities. Questions How can we reach a future where children’s experiences of digital games are enriched with opportunities for academic and social development? How can entrepreneurs better use metrics and analytics to create engaging learning games? What are best practices for integrating feedback from students, parents and educators? How can edtech companies leverage design and distribution strategies that help their products reach more students, in and out of school? How can they balance the need for teaching and learning efficacy with the need to sustain and grow their own businesses?

                Using Technology to Make Learning Personal The hype around the use technology to “transform” traditional learning is everywhere and exhausting. Ironically, what technology might be best used for is to enable what we’ve long known works well in teaching and learning: engagement. It also might be best used to help stimulate what we’ve long known is a key to student success: academic tenacity. Most of all, all this technology might actually make learning more personal, optimizing our face to face time with students. Come join a conversion about all of this and more as we explore the strategic use of data analytics, digital curricular curation, “flip” models, competency-based progression, and more.
