College Ready is a wonderful new smartphone game, available in the form of an iTunes app, that is designed to get students familiar with the process of applying for college.
The game takes a board game-like format and requires players to answer questions related to the college application process. Questions cover everything from financial aid deadlines to various details related to bachelor's degree attainment. Students earn virtual points that go towards their graduation in the game.
What makes College Ready such a great innovation is the fact that it uses gamification to help students get familiar with the process of applying for college, ensuring that they don't feel intimidated or out of their depth when the time comes for them to start applying to college for real.
