WBPRESS.ORG offers tabletop gaming with a purpose. We use modern, analog board and role-playing games to enhance social and academic learning among older children and adults.
We offer two main services:
1. Ludokhesis [loo-doh-KEE-sis]: "Analog Gaming for Growing Souls" emphasizes SOCIAL AND EMOTIONAL LEARNING for children in 6-12th grades and young adults. The Ludokhesis concept is cobbled from two classic, linguistic sources: Latin: ludere which means “to play” or “to game," and Greek: katekhesis, which means “to teach by life-to-life transfer of skills, knowledge, and wisdom.”
2. STEAM VALve: "Releasing Potential Through Analog Gaming" emphasizes ACADEMIC ENHANCEMENT with special attention to the Texas Essential Knowlege and Skills [TEKS] and Common Core for children in 6-12th grade and young adults.
We also offer programming for special populations including gifted-talented and those on the Autism spectrum. We use role-playing games and other game-derived tools to help improve self-efficacy, active listening, conflict resolution, resiliency, responsible decision-making, etc. in a collaborative, joyful environment.
