Game-making Learning Programs for Everyone

Game Development for Learning

At the heart of our approach to learning lies a powerful pedagogy that integrates games and learning through a creative process. Our curriculum encourages learners to play, create, share, and reflect as they develop career-ready skills through game development.

 

Through our game-making programs, learners are immersed in digital worlds and engage in visual art, music, storytelling, and coding, with opportunities for specialization. Supported by partners, we provide equitable access to these programs through direct instruction or train-the-trainer models, reaching learners across the USA, LATAM, and beyond.

Our Learning Principles

We hold the following principles at the forefront of every learning journey.

Everyone belongs.
We celebrate inclusion and diversity within the game-making community.

Play matters.
We recognize creative play as fundamental to learning and living.

Create for impact.
We inspire game makers who create meaningful change in the world.

Share often. Be open. 
We promote safe, collaborative spaces where game makers learn from one another.

Reflect and refine.
We value intentional reflection that helps us grow and evolve.

Learning is not linear.
We embrace flexibility and failing forward in an iterative design process.

The Endless Learning Journey

The Endless curriculum model allows learners to play, create, share, and reflect across all aspects of game design and development in a self-led or facilitated environment, curating their own, unique career pathway.
