Workshop: Improving Capacity for Game-Based Research to Scale

PI: Kurt Squire University of Wisconsin-Madison Award Details A growing number of educators are looking to game-based learning approaches to increase interest in and understanding of major science mathematics, engineering and technology (STEM) concepts. Serious games have demonstrated the capacity to engage learners in complex domains through role playing and problem solving. A key hypothesis […]

DIP: ‘Hard Fun’ Learning Mathematics: Stimulating Number Sense

PIs: Daphne Bavelier, Justin Halberda, Alan Gershenfeld, Michael Angst, Michael Levine University of Rochester Award Detail This project focuses on development of number sense in 7 to 11 year old students through a 3D action game that will train the brain. The project tests a hypothesis that playing a number-sense action game can help children […]
