The LiTT (Learning To Transform) Video Gaming Lab is a seed project that forges a connection between CU Boulder and the Youth Empowerment Broadcasting Organization (YEBO). YEBO is a community-based organization in Denver that operates within and beyond classrooms to support youth in leveraging media and media production for the development of critical civic practices. The partnership involves the intentional design of a learning environment that aims to facilitate collaboration between high school students from Montbello, CU Boulder undergraduates, in-service teachers, and community members. Specifically, the high school students (who are served by YEBO) and undergraduates will be enrolled in the CU Boulder courses. Their work in classes will include partnering with in-service teachers to develop lesson plans and curricula that leverage video game based technologies and learning.
