Odeum is launching a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter to bring to the market a collection of customizable 3D immersive role-playing games built around K-12 curriculum to enhance students’ learning experience and develop critical thinking and empathy.
The company’s name, Odeum, is originated in the Ancient World, from Greek ōideion – a theater where ancients of Greece and Rome hosted music and poetry competitions. Now, a group of parents, educators and game developers have come together to create a game theater for modern age scholars.
The Odeum games focus on Social Studies, Language Arts, and Foreign Languages for grades 6 through 12. But because they are easily customizable, teachers and parents of elementary school children can utilize them by creating a project-based learning process to help the kids better understand school books and relate to the events described there. In addition, players can compete with each other by using leaderboards, making the learning process more fun and engaging.
