Abstract
This project team will fully develop and test AlphaBear 2, a vocabulary learning game for grade 4 to 7 students. Vocabulary is a prerequisite for academic success, as it is linked to stronger performance across academic subjects and improved reading comprehension. It is more difficult for students to participate in educational activities without understanding the key vocabulary associated with that activity. While the importance of vocabulary is well documented, students often need opportunities outside of normal classroom instruction to develop the wider breath of vocabulary knowledge to improve academic achievement.
