Podcast Tuesday: “Learning is amazing, let’s treat it like this.” with Lauri Jarvilehto, CEO Lightneer
In today’s episode Gary had the honor to talk to Lauri Jarvilehto, CEO of Lightneer. Lauri is extremely passionate about learning and how to help kids, young adults or basically anyone to spark their love for learning. In his opinion games are a wonderful tool to do exactly this and give young kids the context that is so often missing in today’s classroom.
Lightneer is currently working on Big Bang Legends, a new particle physics inspired arcade game, featuring the smallest of superheroes – the Atoms! Collect Atom Heroes, solve puzzles and mazes, and battle with the antimatter!
Tune in to hear more about:
- Lauri’s motivation to create high quality games (Big Bang Legends) to help kids spark the love for learning; and,
- Why we shouldn’t even try to compete with existing learning methods; and,
- The problem with technology in education; and,
- What needs to change to address the real pain points in education.
