Games can be fun, but when used in the right venue, they can be educational as well. Marty Schultz, Founder of Blindfold Games and Co-Founder of Objective Ed, traveled to CSUN to receive the Touch of Genius award
From National Braille Press for his work in providing new game based tools for Education. In this interview Marty tells Shelly the inspiration for Objective Ed and how it grew out of the success of Blindfold Games. He outlines the concepts behind the skill training aspects of some of the game s mechanics while noting that he hopes the ability to customize the program might lead to teachers creating a repository of lessons for students. Visit the Objective Ed website to learn more about this project And fans of Marty s Blindfold Games work should keep reading that site
