What is Age of Makers?

Age of Makers is a free, open-sourced and gamified curriculum for educators and volunteers to inspire youth globally to impact the world around them, through music and technology.

“Purpose-based” Learning 🎯

While the traditional approach to education starts by teaching the "How", Age of Makers focuses first on the "Why", giving learners context in agency in their learnings.

Can a Game Change the World?

Age of Makers provides an innovative game-based approach to learning, supporting each student to become a changemaker. They navigate an interactive world at their own pace and are driven by their own motivations.

Guided Learning Journeys

To build a solution for the challenge they care about, students skill up by completing "Quests", bite-sized learning adventures.

Each quest unlocks when the prerequisite quests are completed, ensuring "Mastery-based learning": students move to the next topic only when they have mastered the previous one.

A Whole New World

The quests are placed on a map with multiple learning areas, for each student to visualize what they can learn and how it all relates to each other.

Completing the Quests allows them they evolve through the "Ages", expanding the learning map they are navigating in.

Limitless Learning Opportunities

Quests can take different forms:

  • a video with interactive quizzes, like a virtual piano, to assess and strengthen the students' learnings
  • an interactive showcase to inspire the students
  • or, the star of the show and unique to Age of Makers: an embedded guide on top of an external website

That means that, as an educator, the amount of content that can be leveraged through the game is pretty much endless. 🚀
