Class Experience

LearningWorks for Kids (LW4K) views gameplay as a foundation for children’s learning. LW4K LIVE classes leverage children's attention, persistence, and love of gaming as tools for developing executive functioning, social-emotional, and academic skills used in and out of game play. Our teachers are expert gamers, trained in psychology and education with the goal of making game-based learning into real world skills.  But playing games is not enough! We apply evidenced-based strategic teaching principles and the LW4K model of “Detect, Reflect, and Connect” to make gameplay  “Digitally Nutritious” and help students identify, think about, and then apply the skills they are practicing in gameplay to the real world.

While our classes are great fun, there is always a teaching component included. Typically we spend about 10 minutes at the beginning of class, talking, watching video, and strategizing about our targeted skill (e.g. Planning, Time Management, Organization, Flexibility, etc). During gameplay which takes up the remainder of the class, we apply the “Detect, Reflect, and Connect” strategies to promote real world learning. Your kids will have a blast playing video games with our teacher and learn skills that will help them at home, school, and in their daily activities.
Our dedicated, experienced Learning Works for Kids instructors always make sure that every session is just as enjoyable as it is educational. This course is led by Ryan Fite, a member of our LearningWorks LIVE Team. 

Ryan is a course instructor and content creator at Learning Works for Kids. He has a background studying psychology at the University of Rhode Island and volunteering as a crisis counselor. Ryan loves playing games with friends, rock climbing, and his cats. He believes reaching goals both in games and in real life come with practice and critical thinking.

Ryan enjoys working as a group to accomplish fun and challenging tasks together while learning along the way. He believes that reflecting and understanding how we play games and make decisions can help us make the most out of each day. 
Homework assignments will be posted in the Outschool classroom at the conclusion of each session.
