Welcome to a revolution in educational video gaming.
We are a company changing the way math is both taught and learned. We believe in using technology to create a better world. We believe in educating through engaging.
We make math practical. Useful. You want to save your entire village from an illness? You better go get the right number of herbs and bring them back. Oh, and make sure you bring enough arrows with you for hunting buffalo. You’d hate to run out because you brought too few.
See how we just slipped some math skills in there? Even more, it also incorporates historically accurate Native American culture and traditions.
And our graphics are outstanding. Meaning our game meets the standards kids have when it comes to what constitutes a quality gaming environment.
Just as important, Spirit Lake: The Game – our first product — has a demonstrated record of raising math scores in students who play our game. Moreover, our game has proven successful with students who are performing below grade-level. This aspect of the game is at the core of what we do.
Yes, it’s great to have a cool game that students want to play, but a game that students want to play and that can bring underperforming students up to the academic level they’re supposed to be at: That is the kind of thing that will revolutionize the way math is taught.
From an educator standpoint, the game provides a valuable tool that engages students while simultaneously teaching mathematics. Each student’s progress is tracked and charted, allowing teachers to see which concepts both individuals and the class as a whole are grasping and which concepts are presenting challenges to both individuals and/or the class as a whole. We also provide a supplemental resource guide for educators with lesson plans and materials they can incorporate into the class if they want.
From a student standpoint, the game is fun. We’re not just saying that because it sounds good. Kids like playing our game.
Our games are currently in more than 20 schools and after-school programs, and we have an 250 additional individual users.
We have two more computer games currently in development — Fish Lake (January 2014) and Buffalo Trail (Spring 2014). We are in pre-production on our first mobile/tablet game (Summer 2014).
Check out our blog for the most up-to-date information on our game, answers to your questions and more.
We have offices in Santa Monica, California; Silicon Valley; and on the Spirit Lake Dakota Nation in North Dakota.
