Hi, I’m Radhika! I am a designer, who loves to tinker in the space of play, games and learning.

Most recently, I worked on the Mozilla Open Badges initiative where I helped define and visualize new ways to represent badge system design approaches. I designed BadgeDeck, an introductory badge system design toolkit including 25 cards and game-like activities.

Previously, as Game Designer and founding staff at Institute of Play I collaborated with educators in leading the development of game-based curricula including narratives, mini games, artwork and materials to create meaningful learning experiences for 6th graders of the innovative public school Quest to Learn. My work such as Trouble in Troggleton and CityHop featured in the New York Times, NPR and PBS- Frontline. I designed and developed the initial websites for Institute of Play and Quest to Learn. And was part of the core design team for Gamestar Mechanic Learning Guide.

Prior to this, I co-facilitated the Playing for Keeps after school program at Global Kids guiding youth through the design of games based on social issues. At Scholastic, I designed an interactive online tool for high school students to explore STEM careers.

As a graduate of the MFA Design & Technology program at Parsons The New School for Design I focused on exploring games as a medium for learning while combining the use of old and new media to create fun, engaging experiences. My game Panchatantra, designed to educate kids on the ancient tales of wisdom from India, was exhibited at the Parsons MFA thesis show and the Games for Change Expo in 2006. My past experience in design and development of interactive online media coupled with a growing interest in games and learning got me involved with youth related projects at Scholastic, Global Kids and Institute of Play.

Currently, I am a mommy of two kids who inspire in me a sense of wonder and amazement. I love to play with them, watch them learn, grow and develop. I enjoy my adventures in parenting, exploring the world and taking in new experiences of all kinds. Read Less
