Valve brings Portal 2 to schools via 'Teach with Portals'

0

Thanks to Valve's newly released education program "Teach with Portals", schools will now have the opportunity to teach their students through Portal 2. No, really.

Valve has taken Portal 2's recently released Perpetual Testing Initiative expansion and created a more educational version known simply as the Puzzle Maker. Valve has described the Puzzle Maker as a tool that, "...empowers students and educators to craft unique puzzles, explore worlds, and share custom lesson plans."

Valve also says that the program can help students "develop an intuitive understanding of physical principles such as mass and weight, acceleration, momentum, gravity, and energy" as well as with "critical thinking, spatial reasoning, problem solving, iteration and collaboration skills, and encourage overall inquiry into STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) learning."

Teach with Portals is available for download to all educators that successfully complete the sign-up process for the summer beta right now. Teachers will be able to begin drawing up lesson plans and have them ready come autumn.

Of course, this being Valve, the program will be completely free. Why doesn't that surprise me?
