Gaming as an educational tool prepares your              child for success!

Welcome!

Gaming within education is an innovative and creative way for students to learn.  Trying to find inventive ways to rid of the textbook and keep students engaged, gaming, video games and other technology-based methods have been a solution in the classroom. They create real-world problems allowing students to relate firsthand.  


Philosophy

Your child will have the opportunity to pursue a range of extracurricular activities to complement his or her rigorous academic curriculum. The methodology is based on a constructivist model and theory which allows the student to experience every bit of what they are learning.

Constructivism can be described as a theory that deals with the way people create meaning of the world through a series of individual constructs. Constructs are the different types of filters we choose to place over our realities to change our reality from chaos to order. Von Glasersfeld describes constructivism as, “a theory of knowledge with roots in philosophy, psychology, and cybernetics” (p 162).[1] Simply stated, it is a learning process which allows a student to experience an environment first-hand, thereby, giving the student reliable, trust-worthy knowledge. The student is required to act upon the environment to both acquire and test new knowledge.
