Abstract:

This project team is developing a prototype of a delivery platform to host four web-based interactive games to help students overcome scientific misconceptions in middle-grade science. At present, the games are compatible with the Nintendo DSi platform, and include classroom activities that include PowerPoint and print materials. This project team will convert and enhance the games and materials for use on tablet-based devices with touch-screen capability to enable more in-depth and interactive gameplay. The games will supplement classroom lessons for topics such as genetics, photosynthesis, electricity, and energy. Pilot research in Phase I will seek to demonstrate that the software prototype functions as planned, teachers are able to integrate it within the classroom environment, and students are engaged with the prototype.
