Hey EE Times, this idea of learning more effciently by using gaming techniques sounds like a winner. I'd love to hear more about it.

When I was still in high school, I was fortunate enough to be in several classes where we were guinea pigs. For math as well as English, we used what amounted to manuscripts as our main text books. Programmed learning. It was great, effective, even fun. So I'm a firm believer in experimenting with better teaching techniques.

The better computer games are all about learning, where the player has to hone his skills to improve his score and get to the next level. Seems to me that those techniques can be applied to something very useful.

@elctrnx_lyf: As these legend companions speak about them it is clearly the intense passion that was driving Steve and with the hard work you can always be satisfied with the results.

Have you seen that new film "Jobs" yet -- that and the biography together really give you a feel for how everything came together.

It is always nice to have inspirational talks from successful people, really this talk recreated the history of the development of computers and games, it would have been great to listen to the other Steve but unfortunately we can only remember him.

To say that Andy Weir's The Martian is an exploration of math, Mars, and feces is a slight simplification. I doubt that the author would have any complaints, though.
