SecretBuilders, makers of enriching and engaging mobile and online educational games for children, marked a major milestone in its history when it crossed 2000 schools who use it to promote responsible digital citizenship and Internet safety.
The SecretBuilders virtual world supplements in-class learning by exposing children to great literature, creative writing, and digital citizenship. Students participate in virtual talk shows with famous historical and fictional characters, go on adventurous quests into the classics, submit their creative writings to the online magazine, and enter art and writing contests.
Teachers sign up for the free SecretBuilders virtual world Teacher Console, which allows them to reward students for in class achievements with SecretBuilders virtual items.
Common Sense Media uses SecretBuilders in it’s Common Sense K-12 Digital Citizenship Curriculum, designed to empower students to think critically, behave safely, and participate responsibly in the digital world.
“We are gratified to have the trust of thousands of educators and millions of parents. Our mission has always been to create digital experiences that promote a life long love of books and reading. Our very first offering, the SecretBuilders virtual world, now has over 10 million users worldwide in over 100 nations. Our mobile games introduce classics like Sherlock Holmes and Shakespearean plays to millions of children each year,” said co-founder and CEO, Umair Khan.
“To celebrate this milestone of 2000 schools, we wanted to do something special for teachers – our small way of saying thank you. So we are offering free Internet safety posters to all schools and free access to our latest learning app, The Gamebooks Library, to all teachers.”
The SecretBuilders Gamebooks Library is an illustrated eBooks library in which readers unlock learning games as they read abridged classics, earn badges for achieving goals, and compete against other readers on leaderboards. A comprehensive dashboard shows teachers each student’s usage and progress.
Based in Silicon Valley, California, SecretBuilders makes educational games and apps that are both engaging and enriching for children on all screens. SecretBuilders has raised over $7 million to date from The Entrepreneurs’ Fund, Launch Capital, and angel investors including Scott Hassan (co-founder eGroups, founding team member of Google), Greg Titus (The Washington Post Company), Michael Tanne (former CEO of Adforce), and John Welch (former CEO, PlayFirst).
