Igniting A Nation
GameDesk is igniting a nation to get involved and bridge the gap between education and technology through playful and creative learning experiences.
Games found on Educade include fun education-based examples such as Reach for the Sun and DragonBox, as well as non-traditional examples like the wildly popular Angry Birds and Minecraft. Each game has a ready to use, standards aligned lesson plan developed around it to reinforce its viability in the classroom and provide maximum value to the educator or parent using it.
In addition to technology integration, Educade boasts hands-on activities that promote design and engineering concepts found in both STEM and STEAM education initiatives. Maker kits, DIY activities, and embodied learning experiences create a blended curriculum to provide a seamless transition from digital to physical learning.
