Gamer wants gaming taught in schools

Feb 06, 2013
From wire reports

 TALLINN - Young Estonian entrepreneur Vladimir Funtikov, who manages a company developing computer games, says mobile gaming should be offered in lectures in Estonia’s universities; the entrepreneur even offered consultation in teaching this subject in one of Estonia’s higher education establishments, reports Aripaev.
Funtikov’s company Creative Mobile has developed several world-famous mobile games; the entrepreneur himself studied Information Technologies in Tallinn University of Technology.

He currently is negotiating the possible introduction of such  a subject with Estonia’s higher education establishment. Some schools in Holland have already been teaching mobile gaming, says the entrepreneur.
“We have offered [to one of Estonia’s universities] that our professionals could teach mobile gaming classes in exchange for being able to recruit new employees once the students graduate,” said Funtikov.
At present Creative Mobile employs about 60 people, but it needs to recruit workers from Eastern Europe, Russia and Ukraine.

In two years the company has created about ten games for mobile phones. In a single day, between 1.5 million and 1.7 million people play one of the games developed by the firm. Of them, 40 percent are in the U.S. and another 40 percent in Asia.
