TabSchool aims to invigorate every child's desire to learn with e-learning games for every grade and every subject, starting with literacy.
We help programmers and educators collaborate to craft quality open-source games. The best ones are added to our virtual museum of e-learning resources, which we spread to low-income communities using the most efficient technology available.
TabSchool is the brainchild of philanthropic business leader Robert Friedman, who started investing in e-learning programs in 2015 with Zaya Learning Labs. Rob was impressed by their technology, but it was a closed system and he had bigger plans. When he embarked on building the Vera Corazon School in Nicaragua with VisionsGlobalEmpowerment, Rob saw a dire lack of tools for teaching children literacy. That's when he started TabSchool, a 100% free, open-source platform, driven by world-wide collaboration.
TabSchool is an initiative of the educational non-profit organization, Visions Global Empowerment, headquartered in Los Angeles, CA. Visions aims to change patterns of equality by supporting educational initiatives for youth affected by poverty, conflict and disability. Since 2003, Visions has labored tirelessly to serve community needs and enable youth to improve their overall wellbeing through programs ranging from learning centers and leadership trainings to scholarships and beyond.
