In 2014, a study was released showing that kids today will spend 10,000 gaming by the time they graduate high school. That is the same amount of time they will spend in every class, in every subject by graduation if they have perfect attendance.

This means there is a parallel track of learning happening and one that can be harnessed to unlock human potential in a way that is equitable and challenges kids to drive their own success.

Statistically, 30%-40%+ of those same students will be below reading level by grade 4.We have created a platform that empowers students to take charge of their own learning while providing valuable data insights to educators and parents. We believe that every student, regardless of soci-economic status should have access to high quality technology resources. This is why we have made all educational content and general game mechanics in Dreamscape FREE!

This session will cover how game-based learning can be integrated into the modern classroom and at home regardless of technical level or device situation. Dreamscape can improve reading and comprehension skills by providing curriculum content, while also engaging students who are generally non-readers with a video game experience that parallels that of popular non-education strategy games.

Note: All sessions are first come first serve. Seats are not guaranteed.
