Wowza makes learning fun, effective, and inclusive.
Wowza Learning is the learning platform on a mission to transform the world of educational tools. Creating dynamic games that empower students and teachers alike, we promote engaged and collaborative classroom environments.
Together, we work toward a future where all learners are motivated, enriched, and connected—and where learning games are fun for everyone.
Created by a veteran teacher and her former student for teachers and learners everywhere!
Wowza Learning was founded in 2020 by Nikki Eddy and Francisco Izaguirre. Nikki taught English Language Arts for 12 years in the borderlands between San Diego, California, and Tijuana, Mexico. A former student in Nikki’s AP English Class, Francisco, went on to Stanford University and earned a degree in cryptography.
Working in a Title I school with the vast majority of her students being English Language Learners, Nikki helped many of her students become the first in their families to go to college, gaining entrance to schools such as Yale, Stanford, Harvard, Princeton, Penn, Duke, and more.
Zoinks is based on a game Nikki played with thousands of students for over a decade in her classroom. Blending a focus on content with intrinsic motivation and fun, Zoinks is designed to be better for teachers and students—by a teacher and a student who know.
Creating real classroom learning opportunities, Zoinks is more inclusive and equitable. It gives students the chance to demonstrate higher order thinking and on-the-spot learning, all while keeping teachers in control of the game.
