Shawn Young is the CEO and co-founder of Classcraft, an award-winning Engagement Management System used by 5+ million students and educators in more than 160 countries. Classcraft uses the cultural phenomenon of video games to help educators drive measurable academic performance, non-cognitive skills development, and school climate. By blending students’ physical and virtual learning, the program reframes their progress in school as a game they play together throughout the year.
