Abstract:

The project team is developing a prototype of a web-based gaming intervention for students in kindergarten to grade 2 to learn standard-based concepts in science, technology, engineering, and math. The games will include engaging and interactive simulations, investigations, stories and videos, as well as individual pages that allow students to access their own set of digital scientific tools such as a notebook, a glossary, and animations. 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.
