We are proud to share good cheer with our new collection of Voices from the Field videos. These mini-documentaries feature testimonials from education pioneers and their students (boys and girls alike) whose positive experiences with this new form of computing education through game design makes this holiday season all the more joyful. Now in its 3rd year, Globaloria is proving itself to be a powerful model for our nation to follow!
‘Tis the season for Globaloria students’ winter game presentations! After four months of imagining, planning and creating dynamic educational web-game demos, our single-semester designers shared their original creations, giving the Globaloria community another reason to celebrate.
The Foundation welcomed its first school-wide pilot program at the newly formed East Austin College Prep Academy this year. In partnership with AMD, our program is helping 89 sixth grade students create original math games to enrich their math learning the Globaloria Way! Many imaginative and creative wikis, blogs and game ideas are in development. We look forward to many good tidings from the Lone-Star State in 2010.
Foundation Founder and President Idit Harel Caperton was honored to moderate a distinguished panel at the Israel-America Chamber of Commerce’s annual conference in New York on Dec. 3, 2009, hosted by Chemi Peres.
