The U.S. State Department Gets in the Education Game


The U.S. State Department is jumping into the ed-tech world with an online game meant to help teach “American English” to kids between the ages of 12-16 in more than 30 countries. Meant to provide players with a view of American life and culture different from the typical portrayal in movies, Trace Effects officially launches today. It’s part of a bigger effort from the Bureau of Education and Cultural Affairs (ECA) to revamp its website and materials to today’s technology, as well as offer an interactive tool to engage English learners abroad.

We are going to test this game in class and will get back to you our reviews written on the students’ blogs!
