Santeri Koivisto

TeacherGaming LLC تيتشر غيمينغ محدودة المسؤولية
CEO مدير تنفيذي
Finland

Santeri Koivisto is CEO of TeacherGaming LLC, the company that is developing MinecraftEdu and is about to change how the world is looking at games in education. Santeri, the son of a teacher and an entrepreneur, was one of the small percentage of applicants accepted into teacher training at University of Eastern Finland and got a Master in Applied Education. As an avid gamer he was disappointed by the quality of educational games on the market, and decided to try a different approach. Rather than inventing new games that mimicked traditional pedagogy, he wanted to start with what was already an immensely popular game – Minecraft – and stretch it to work for education. Because the game already connected with kids, the MinecraftEdu learning version had a built-in audience. MinecraftEdu is a school-ready remix of the original smash hit game Minecraft, played by over 100 million people worldwide. Today more than 5,000 schools in 40+ countries have used MinecraftEdu to teach subjects from STEM to Language to History to Art and more.
