Katie Salen Explains What Makes Quest Schools Unique

In a personal video message recently recorded for the Quest community, Institute of Play Executive Director Katie Salen explains how the game-like learning model at the heart of Quest Schools creates a unique learning environment driven by student engagement.

For Katie, there are 3 main things that make Quest to Learn and CICS ChicagoQuest different from other schools: (1) the everyday collaboration between game designers, teachers, and curriculum developers; (2) an assessment model that measures 21st century skills like empathy and collaboration in addition to proficiency with state standards; and (3) a commitment to formative research, which enables constant improvement and iteration on the model.
