New York based Reboot Stories is a global collective of storytellers, game designers, coders, data scientists, activists, educators and researchers. They produce prototypes that strive to ignite the imaginations of many while turning ideas into action.
Big Idea: With a trilogy of experiential learning projects, Reboot Stories aims to engage children from low-income school districts with imaginative and educational activities.
Why It’s Working: Reboot Stories is pushing the boundaries of traditional learning by incorporating technology and multimedia into classrooms that otherwise would lack the resources to do so.
Reboot Stories harnesses storytelling, technology and design science to form an innovation engine for cross-generational learning and social good. Co-founded by Lance Weiler, Janine Saunders and Atley Loughridge in 2012, Reboot Stories has partnered with the UN, the World Economic Forum, Columbia University, and others to design and run global cross-generational learning platforms. In 2012, Reboot Stories was awarded the prestigious Tribeca New Media Fund award.
“Make the world work for 100% of humanity, in the shortest possible time, through spontaneous cooperation, without ecological offense or the disadvantage of anyone.”
