World Wide Workshop VP Shannon Sullivan congratulating
Best New Educator Carlos Inda as Idit cheers them on from the NY Office!

Today we took a moment to video chat with Dr. Idit Harel Caperton, the President and Founder of the World Wide Workshop, who answered questions and inspired everyone in the room! As she looked on, we also honored one of our Best New Educators, Carlos Inda. Carlos is a second year educator at Christopher School in San Jose, and has done a wonderful job so far! Five of his students won Best Game at this year's Globey Awards, so we think he deserves to be recognized with Adobe Flash Software and a drawing tablet! Great job!

Check out the winning game, Math Sports from team Barcelona!

CA Summer Training Academy - Day Two & Three!

Educators working hard on their games

Phew! We just finished day three of our California Summer Training Academy at the Krause Center for Innovation, here's a recap of the past two days. On Sunday, our superstar educators worked on converting their paper prototypes into drawings in flash, and adding game ingredients to make their Hidden Object Games come to life!

On Monday, all educators broke up into groups and presented their final games and their projects pages, showing all the hard work they did so far. We were so impressed by all the awesome games and ideas that we saw. Can't wait to see what their students come up with!
