Institute of Play

PARTNER PROFILE

Institute of Play designs experiences that make learning irresistible. Using games, play and the principles that underlie them, we’ve created successful institutions, games, programs, events, digital platforms and products. The Institute’s first project was the design and launch of the innovative New York City public school, Quest to Learn. Recently, the Institute launched GlassLab, which researches and develops next-generation game-based learning and assessment tools like the new SimCityEDU. All of the resources the Institute develops have been teacher-tested and student-approved. Use them to level up the learning in your classroom by engaging your students in exciting and empowering new ways. For more information, please visit www.instituteofplay.org.
