We learn when we play
We believe that learning is happening everywhere, all of the time!
As Playground City, we see that the people and places of our cities are connected together, like an education ecosystem, providing rich and meaningful opportunities for learning! Our mission is to help empower folks of all ages to access this learning through playful design.
To do this, we celebrate empathy, experimentation, and imagination - challenging ourselves to understand the aspirations of our learners and co-create enriching, exciting experiences with them!
We believe that play enables people to learn in diverse and complex ways and the challenges we will face in the 21st Century require diverse and complex solutions!
What We Do
DESIGN LEARNING ADVENTURES
We believe that play enables people to realize their full learning potential. We design and curate playful educational experiences that connect student interests with 21st Century skill building and competencies.
PROMOTE EDUCATION PLACEMAKING
Learning can happen anywhere! From bus stops to laundromats, we dream of ways to infuse education into everyday places and spaces. In Barbershop Talk we blended a non-violent communication curriculum with barber training set in a live barbershop environment.
grow learning networks
We support an open group of interconnected, creative, and innovative people and organizations throughout the Orlando area, working with organizations like the Orlando Science Center, After School All Stars, and National Center for Simulation Workforce Development.
