BOISE, Idaho – GoGo Labs, Inc. announced today that it will partner with the North Carolina Center for the Advancement of Teaching (NCCAT) to provide North Carolina public school teachers with online training in quest-based digital learning.

NCCAT will host the online training in GoGo Labs’ 3D Game Lab environment from November 17 through December 5, 2014.

“This valuable opportunity for GoGo Labs to partner with NCCAT offers teachers in North Carolina the ability to work with leading experts and technologies in the gamification of curriculum and the classroom experience, led by local NCCAT leaders with a long history of providing excellence in teacher professional development,” said Dr. Lisa Dawley, CEO and cofounder, with Dr. Chris Haskell, of GoGo Labs. “We are thrilled with this fantastic opportunity to positively impact North Carolina students with engaging forms of learning.”

Participating teachers will learn to design, play, and share quests and badges as they create personalized learning for their students. The training is provided as part of North Carolina’s professional development offerings for teachers.
“As teachers, we all know that getting students motivated and engaged in their own learning is an important first step in any learning cycle,” said Dr. Jonathan Wade, NCCAT director of programming. “Gamification, while maintaining the rigor of the learning and the continuity of the learning outcomes, gives the student greater ownership over their own learning processes and engages them more fully in the process.”
