Welcome to the MindSnacks Digest!

Greetings! Hola! Willkommen! You’ve stumbled upon our new blog about edtech, games, and educational theory. We hope you’re hungry for knowledge, because we’re about to serve heaping dishes of it each week. Why are we doing this? Well, that’s simple: because MindSnacks believes learning should be delicious. When education excites us, we devour knowledge; but when it doesn’t, that information may as well be cafetaria food. It may be packed full of vitamins and minerals, but it’s gosh-darn hard to swallow.

We believe technology and game design have the potential to revitalize education. We pour a ton of thought, research, and cutting edge theory into the design and mechanics of our games because we want everyone, everywhere, to enjoy learning as much as we do. Learning should be something you want to do everyday, which is why we work hard to build games you’ll play over and over again.

And so far millions of you have done just that (high fives all around!). Some of you, though… some of you love not just the games, but also the ideas behind the games. Maybe you’re an edtech geek, or an educator, or perhaps someone who just loves learning for the sake of learning. Whoever you are, we’re writing this for you.

Welcome to our table.
