We’re Game Learning,
an educational video game
”We firmly believe that fun and education should go hand in hand.
Massman’s previous successes in education includes the successful launch of Vinci Academy with Dr. Dan Yang. Vinci Academy provides an environment where Infants, toddlers, and preschool age children receive an unmatched early childhood education, based on the Vinci blended learning curriculum which brings together best practices from Montessori, Reggio, and the use of the VINCI Education tablet. This model of education has been shown to help children to test 1-2 grade-levels above their classmates when entering kindergarten. VINCI educates 50,000 children worldwide operating in China, Canada, and the United States of America.
In addition, as Principal of Mass Equity, Massman successfully brought together leading investors allowing private equity to deliver premium real estate options for charter schools. To date, Mass Equity has facilitated more than $1 Billion in the development of educational facilities. Mass Equity remains a privately held real estate development company specializing in pre-K-12 educational facilities.
Massman’s dedication to improving the educational space for students of all ages, across all demographics, continues to help shape the future of generations to come.
Dr. Gliserman holds a Ph.D. in History and an M.S. in Geographic Information Science and Technology from the University of Southern California. The core of his research emerged from working in nearly twenty archives throughout America, France, and Britain. On the one hand, Dr. Gliserman has traced the changing role of maps within the political culture of colonial America. He has also employed computer-mapping software (ArcGIS) to digitally process historical maps, such as a highly detailed 1761 survey of the St. Lawrence River Valley, to assess their spatial and demographic accuracy.
Dr. Gliserman has presented his research at Cambridge University, the University of Pennsylvania, the Colonial Society of Massachusetts, the Organization of American Historians, the American Historical Association, the Bibliothèque Nationale de France. He has received fellowships and grants from the American Historical Association, the USC-Huntington Early Modern Studies Institute, the Gilder Lehrman Institute of Early American History, the Omohundro Institute of Early American History and Culture at the College of William and Mary, the McNeil Center for Early American Studies at the University of Pennsylvania, and mostly recently, the Center for Digital Research in the Humanities at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. His work has been featured in Perspectives on History and Process: A Blog for American History.

What students and teachers are saying about us.
“My class has been using Game Learning video games in our classroom for a couple of years now and it’s so rewarding to see my students excited about History and learning. They love playing the games and competing with each other using the scoreboard. More than that, hey really are learning through the games and interacting with historical characters and themes. I am able to witness this not just through observations and discussions with my students, but I can see their progress from the teacher dashboard as well. I highly recommend these history-based educational video games. It's important to bring history alive!”Samantha HillisU.S. History, Speech/Debate, and Leadership Teacher
“If more schools and after school programs utilized video games to make learning fun, every one of the youths would be invested in learning. The world is changing, so should the way we teach and engage with youth. This is a great step forward.”Carlos BaltazarBoys & Girls Club
“It was very exciting to see how enthusiastic my students were to learn about history!”Sarah PerkinsLarchmont Charter School
“This rocks!”Lucy HermanAge 10, Student
“The game is good. It’s really intensive.”Keith PluymersPostdoctoral Fellow, Division of the Humanities and Social Sciences, Caltech University
“The game teaches a lot about food, clothing, shelter in pre-modern conditions, particularly in a frontier setting; there’s some inherent drama in getting things figured out before winter. It was fun and, if I let myself, I could probably get sucked into it for far longer than I should.”Dave NeumannAssistant Professor, Education and Integrative Studies, Cal Poly Pomona; Former Director of the History Project at CSU Long Beach
