The Gameful Design Lab aims to increase gaming literacy — a combination of systems thinking, metacognition, and agency, mixed with an attitude of playfulness — among all populations.
Currently, we’re working with Da Vinci Communications on high school curricula that spans 9th and 10th grade English, Chemistry, and Computer Science that incorporates game design units using Twine.
We are also helping Teens Exploring Technology (TXT) plan and run game design nights at their South LA hacker space for urban boys.
In development is an upcoming game jam for homeless youth in Downtown LA.
