Education Made Easy

23 Mar

I continue to think companies who can combine gaming and education in innovative ways will be big winners moving forward. One company I have had tremendous fun and success learning with is Memrise.com

Although there is room for improvement the site has been extremely helpful with my foray into learning Italian, and also helpful with refreshing my knowledge of painters and other artists. They use the analogy of growing plants to frame the process involved in creating a long term memory- you need to water it daily to make the plant (“memory”) grow and eventually stick.  I think if they added some gaming components the site would be an even bigger success. Try it out and let me know what you think, its free for now so enjoy.
