design & critical thinking

In today’s rapidly evolving world, integrating game literacy and multimodal learning into education is more than just an innovative approach; it's essential for preparing students for future success. Our unique STEAM classes harness the power of these cutting-edge educational strategies to enhance reading, writing, and research skills.

A study by Gee (2003) on video games and learning emphasizes how games can enhance cognitive development, including problem-solving, pattern recognition, and systemic thinking.

The Science Behind Game Literacy and Multimodal Learning

Recent educational psychology and cognitive science research underscores the significance of game literacy and multimodal learning in developing critical thinking, problem-solving skills, and adaptability. These learning strategies engage students by incorporating visual, auditory, and kinesthetic elements, making learning an interactive, immersive experience. Such an approach captivates students' attention and enhances their ability to retain and apply knowledge across various disciplines.

Reading, Writing & Researching: The Core of Success

Refining reading, writing, and research skills are at the heart of our STEAM classes. These fundamental abilities are crucial for academic success and are highly valued in STEM high schools, scholarships, internships, and college applications. By integrating these skills with game design and STEM research, our program offers a unique educational experience that prepares students for the challenges of advanced academic environments and the professional world.
