We're Going Global with
Game-Based Learning.

About Us



Imagine having teachers and computer programmers / developers from all over the world collaborating to take the best curricula and then developing them into games so learning becomes fun and engaging. Now imagine a tablet, like an iPad but not quite as powerful and much cheaper, hosting thousands of game-based curricula, distilled down to a beautiful tab school that is engaging, fun and most importantly very educational. We present to you, TabSchool.



Our Mission

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.

Our founding

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.
