The David L Hoyt Education Foundation was formed to facilitate, enable, and develop play-based learning for students of all ages through programming utilizing expertly crafted games and puzzles. In doing so, our organization strives to make learning accessible, interactive, inclusive, and enjoyable.
The founders, David L. Hoyt and his wife Claire Haasl, understand that play is endlessly important to creating global citizens who can make strategic decisions and think creatively. In order to fulfill our mission we strive to accomplish the following objectives: developing curriculum for the Giant Word Winder and Giant Math Winder games; partnering with existing educational and community organizations; providing educational games and/or play-based tools; and providing fundraising tools for those looking to raise money for games.
We are excited that 2017 is bringing new initiatives, such as the Center for Collaborative Learning at 4312 N. Lincoln Ave in Chicago, IL, which officially opened its doors in March. Also home to our foundation's offices, we hope that the Center for Collaborative Learning will be a communal place where students, families, and community groups will come to play and learn from each other.
