About Immersed Games

We're an ed-tech startup with an audacious vision of how games can be used to
empower student learning.

The Founding Story

One day, while playing World of Warcraft, our founder realized how much she had learned, simply through the act of play. Thousands of items, boss strategies, awesome problem solving… it’s just that the content didn’t matter outside of the game world.

As she went to a doctoral program in education, she increasingly realized what a perfect model an online game could provide for a learning platform. After not seeing anything out there taking advantage of the full power of the medium, she was driven to create it — and so, Immersed Games was born.

Mission

The process of playing a game is the process of learning.

You are learning about how to play the game – the strategies, items, what everything in the game world does. It just so happens that most of the time that learning doesn’t matter outside of the game world.

But what if it did?

What if the same game mechanics were used in a game where the learner could generalize it, where it would matter for real learning?
