news.tes.co.uk reports that applying video gaming technology to education will allow students to learn ten times faster and retain knowledge “forever”, according to the latest education entrepreneur to emerge from the US.
Nolan Bushnell already has an impressive track record. As the man behind Atari – the home of Space Invaders – he pioneered computer gaming and gave Apple founder, the late Steve Jobs, his first job.
But today the 71-year-old is turning his attention to education and believes his new company Brainrush will make him more money than ever.
Mr Bushnell thinks that by making learning as addictive as video games he can dramatically reduce the time it takes to teach the curriculum.
