Must-listen podcast for parents on the hunt for creative learning approaches

I recommend Game Schooler to every parent that’s interested in play-based learning so literally every parent out there because kids learn best through play. However, many parents may not know about the power of board games in education which these two, very pleasant gentlemen and subject matter experts excellently talk about. They found a very powerful niche in the boardgames space in which they connect educational concepts to games primarily for families. Whether you are a parent or educator on the lookout for creative approaches, this is a must-listen podcast. I’m a parent (quasi teacher myself with a middle-school teaching wife *wink*) and passionate board gamer who is on a quest to tell more parents about the under-valued and under-utilized medium “board game” so I’m very pleased to hear from Doug and Dr. McCabe. Way to go, gentlemen!

This is tremendous!

Thank you gentlemen for your time and talent inputting together these episodes. This is a great asset to me as my wife and I homeschool our kids and I was looking to integrate gaming into this. This podcast does a phenomenal job of getting me off on the right foot. Well done and kudos to you both! Good luck with everything going forward!

Interesting and entertaining

This is an excellent board game podcast. It brings gaming and education together as they were meant to be. Mike and Doug are very thoughtful in their approach and bring insightful comments and ideas. Great listen for anyone but especially for families who love gaming.
