The power of games for learning
Games are the most effective vehicle for learning: they provide a safe, creative environment in which kids learn to experiment, collaborate, and problem-solve.

OUR APPROACH

The ultimate
learning experience
Our innovative educational approach forms a learning environment with unique opportunities for kids to develop future-critical skills.
01
Complex games
We create collaborative games that simulate the complex environments and novel situations our children will experience in their real lives.
home-approach-childled
Learn by doing
Children develop their thinking, social and leadership skills by navigating complex game concepts while using the game mechanics in practice. They build their confidence by learning to adapt in constantly changing environments and managing the unexpected.
Engaging and fun
No rules given
02
Child-led
Children always lead the discussion. Our facilitators just coordinate discussions and empower children to actively discover, practice and develop their skills through open-ended, structured questioning.
home-approach-complexgames
Self-directed mindset
Children take control of their own learning. They plan, implement, evaluate and reflect on their approach and thinking collaboratively.
Personalisation
Ownership
03
Teamwork
Learning to live and work together and appreciate different strengths, skills and perspectives is a core life skill. Children will work and make friendships with like-minded forward thinkers.
home-approach-teamwork
Achieve more together
Children learn to recognise, understand, and accept differences in skill, motivation, thinking and emotional responses, as well as harness each individual’s strengths to reach the common goal and solve complex problems – simulating real life.
Develop social skills
Peer tutoring

The foundation
of our challenges
In each game children will learn in practice sophisticated thinking concepts to approach complex problems, improve their decision making and come up with novel solutions themselves.

What kids will learn
This is an introduction to NXTLVL, and as such focuses on foundational skills. For the first time, children experience being ‘thrown’ into the game, without knowing what the rules are. They have to cope with uncertainty and figure things out collaboratively, by making assumptions and testing them - using first principles thinking to reverse-engineer the complex game and deduce the rules.

Second-Order Thinking
Probabilistic Thinking
What kids will learn
Children encounter a virtual world and are called to evaluate and decide between their robots’ needs and their city’s needs. They must analyse the impact of each decision on their team but also the world; implementing second-order thinking. Children also use probabilistic thinking to analyse patterns of elements found in the world, and use this information in their strategy formation, balancing leadership and collaboration for the benefit of the individual and the team.
