"Like an on-again off-again romance, education and entertainment have a long-standing but ambiguous relationship. They seem to like each other, they get along well, they are usually found together. But they’ll tell you they are “just friends” even though they don’t act like it. But other times they are bitter jealous rivals—education isn’t fun enough; entertainment isn’t serious enough.

For all their mutual affection, it might seem that education and entertainment don’t share the same goals. But in fact, these two star-crossed lovers have much in common. Education and entertainment are drawn to one another, partners in a messy union that we might call “edutainment.”

Perhaps the chief reason for this competitive tension is that education and entertainment have different goals. Education aims to cultivate maturity, responsibility, knowledge and growth. Good education trains us for employment, for good citizenship, and for a deeper, more meaningful human experience. But entertainment aims only to amuse, and holds no prejudice against meaningless fun.

What do we do then? Should we throw up our hands in surrender? If edutainment is a mythic hybrid, like centaurs, the sphynx, or zero-calorie cheesecake, then any serious search for it is doomed to disappointment.

Fortunately, these two paths can overlap. They are meandering paths — not parallel roads. Education and entertainment frequently intersect, and when they do, we can enjoy the best of both worlds: rich delights and profound learning."—David Ferrer, The Quad
