As a dedicated team of innovators, educators, game designers, engineers, inventors, administrators, and students seeking a better tomorrow, GameDesk aims to catalyze a major shift in the way society thinks about education and inspire everyone to become part of the movement to make serious learning fun.
GameDesk is a transformative education ecosystem with a mission to help develop the next generation model of education, revolutionizing the way students learn by embedding academic content and assessment into hands-on experiences, digital games, and simulations. The organization's focus is to help close the achievement gap and to engage students, particularly those that are low-proficient in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) fields.
Originally developed out of seven years of research at the University of Southern California, GameDesk has created, tested, and evaluated effective game- and play-based curriculum and software throughout various pilots in schools and community centers in the Los Angeles area.
