Spore’s Effectiveness as a Learning System Apéritif


Spore’s Effectiveness as a Learning System Apéritif

Coggno Inc. | Dec, 16 2008

Is Spore truly effective for piquing kids’ interest in real-world scientific learning systems? This is just one part of the debate regarding Spore’s role as a learning system for kids. PC Gamer awarded the game a 91%, saying “Spore’s triumph is painfully ironic. By setting out to instill a sense of wonderment at creation and the majesty of the universe, it’s shown us that it’s actually a lot more interesting to sit here at our computers and explore the contents of each other’s brains.”

But GameSpy praised, “Spore is a technological triumph that introduces a whole new way of tapping into a bottomless well of content,” and gave it 4.5 out of 5 stars. What’s exciting about Spore may not be the educational content that it offers, but the potential that it reflects for video games to serve as interactive learning systems.
