From apps to combat cyberstalking and real life domestic abuse, to using existing popular Facebook features, hundreds of volunteer developers contributed their time and talent to create online solutions against domestic violence during a weekend hackathon spanning two continents.

Playforce A searchable database of games with learning potential, Playforce allows users to explore games related to specific learning content, academic standards or twenty-first century skills, like empathy, systems thinking or collaboration. Playforce provides an indispensable resource to educators and parents looking to use games in service of specific learning goals. Game perspectives on Playforce are player-generated and moderated by a user community. Which means they don’t focus on what experts think is good about game play, but rather on what players know, based on their own collective experience. By putting the experience of players front and center, Playforce lets educators and parents know exactly what to expect from the games they use. Developed in partnership with E-Line Media, Playforce is now in beta.
