New stretch goal: Storium for Schools!
Last night our campaign blew past the $100,000 funding mark. That's an incredible achievement and it speaks volumes about the passion and commitment of our backers. Josh, Will, J.C., Mur, Chuck, and I are all deeply humbled by your support for Storium. Thank you!
Now, with just nine days left, it’s time for us to think even bigger. We have grand ideas for how Storium can grow beyond our current vision, and your support is pushing us to reach for that future.
One of the most exciting things to emerge from this campaign has been the strong interest of students, teachers, and parents. They've been telling us — in great numbers — that Storium holds tremendous potential for helping students write and express themselves through play, both in and outside of the classroom.
We hear you, and we're inspired. We want Storium to be a force for good, and this feels like an incredibly compelling way to do it. So with your help, we’re going to make it happen! We're proud to unveil a major new feature stretch goal:
Unlocks at $200,000
STORIUM FOR SCHOOLS — We will build a version of Storium that is tailored for schools, teachers, and students! We will work with educators to identify and build the features that schools require, run pilot tests, and even design "worlds" and curricula for students of different ages, including adults. (The Storium for Schools effort will likely begin after the public launch of Storium.)
Based on the pace of our funding over the last couple days, it seems quite possible for us to hit $200,000 if we push hard. So please: help us spread the word! Tell your friends who are parents. Tell any educators you know. And tell anyone who believes — as we do — that games can help students learn, create, and express themselves. We have a unique opportunity to make a real difference here. Please help us get there!
