World Wide Workshop

The World Wide Workshop develops applications for learning with technology that combine game mechanics and social networking to empower youth to be inventors and leaders in the global knowledge economy. The Workshop’s programs transform education by connecting youth to learning-by-doing, community engagement and economic development through game production.

The Workshop is committed to improving quality education opportunities for all youth in the USA and the world by collaborating with forward-thinking school systems, universities, corporations, foundations and research centers worldwide to enrich existing formal and non-formal education with the latest technology and innovative learning opportunities.
