About our shows


The Participate live stream is hosted by Participate's Director of Engagement Mike Washburn and Dr. Julie Keane. Mike and Julie explore the various ways nonprofits, NGOs, school districts and organizations leverage online communities to grow their organizations. Mike and Julie chat with Participate partners and friends who are building exemplary communities to impact their community members and the world around them.

Game Study

The Game Study is hosted by Mike Washburn, Zack Hartzman, and Steve Issacs.  Every Monday afternoon, Mike, Zack, and Steve take a deep dive into games. Think “book study” and you're on the right track. We know games have incredible narrative power, they dig into those narratives and discuss how games can be used in the classroom. 

The Sandbox

The Sandbox is hosted by Participate's Director of Engagement Mike Washburn and educator Beck Lattof. Every two weeks on Thursday, Mike and Becky explore The Sandbox Game’s amazing Game Maker and VoxEdit tools and work with educators around the world to discuss teaching game design and computational thinking in the K-12 classroom.


Unscripted is hosted by Brad Shreffler. Every Tuesday, Brad takes a deep dive into coding with viewers. This is a truly collaborative learning experience, Brad doesn't have all the answers, but he's ready to learn something new with you! Unscripted is a project-based learning coding show. What is started in one show carries on for a number of episodes through to completion. 

Occasionally, a co-host joins Brad. This co-host generally has unique experience valuable to Brad at specific points in the project.
