Best PhD programs in education and gamification or educational games?

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

Which graduate schools have the best PhD programs in education and gamification or educational games? Anybody knows? I'm interested in combining foreign language education and games or game mechanics.

Thanks for your answers in advance!

Do some reading in this area and look and see where the authors are--these are the places you should go. For a PhD program, it's about the faculty who are there (though there are some programs that focus on gamification at a program level...these will emerge when you do your reading).

I have a prof who came out of Northwestern.  His work was/is pretty cool.  He's collaborating with colleagues at Wisconsin.  

I'm pleased with my program.  A decent number of students are interested in foreign language ed./design.  

I know folks who have moved to Harvard for post-docs or PhDs (from MAs).

If you already code well, don't overlook the MIT Media Lab; they have an ed tech group called Lifelong Kindergarten.  A classmate in my research group is checking them out.  

Stanford just hosted a conference a couple of weeks ago.  I think they'd deserve a look.

I'm sure there are others.  But, Northwestern, Wisconsin-Madison, Columbia/Teachers College, Harvard, MIT and Stanford are a good start.
