This event is organized by the iThrive Games.

How we engage civically is a measure of our social and emotional skills. This session, designed for secondary school administrators, policymakers, and organizations, will explore how iThrive Sim’s award-winning simulation games elevate C3 Framework-aligned civics education into play-powered, social and emotional skill-building experiences for teens. As part of this informational session, participants will learn how iThrive Sim’s game-based and wellness-supporting approach to civics education, and the science that underpins it, is transforming how young people learn. Participants will also play a demo of a single-player game co-created by teens, iThrive Games, and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for a firsthand experience of how the self-regulation, stress management, peer connection, and real-world applications in an iThrive Sim game helps create transformative civic learning experiences in high schools and in teen-serving program.

Please note that an additional registration step is required for this event. Please register for this event here to receive the Zoom meeting details.
