With $10.3 million of funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, a new research facility is being developed to study the use of digital games in education. The GLASS Lab (Games, Learning and Assessment Lab) will be housed at the headquarters of Electronic Arts and managed by the Institute of Play.

GLASS Lab is based on the understanding that digital games and simulations can support student learning by providing immediate feedback for students, teachers and parents on students’ progress toward established learning goals.
