Teaching through online games
Classroom, Inc. is an innovative non-profit in NYC that targets adolescents living in poverty and at risk for educational failure. One tool in their arsenal: Online games to inspire the students and teach them about life in the business world.
Cecropia helped design and develop these online games, which not only provide vital learning opportunities, but do it in a way that is fun and engaging. In one such game, called The Sports Network, students can manage their very own cable sports network.
Educational software is particularly challenging. If it doesn’t pass the Sniff Test with students, they won’t engage, which means they don’t learn. Cecropia knows how to combine on-screen graphics with back-end coding to create educational software that is both educational and engaging.
