Abstract
In response to the DARPA Game World SBIR solicitation topic, the Mosaic ATM team, including Utah State University, proposes the Instructional Simulation Author and Play System (ISAPS). ISAPS will leverage the passion and creativity of many of our Nation's educators to create hundreds of free, highly educational simulation games spanning a broad range of science learning. Innovative aspects of this research effort include advanced instructional simulation authoring capabilities for non-programmers, and accurate analysis of game teaching effectiveness based on domain-specific pedagogical models. We will leverage our existing Simulation Learning Platform, developed under funding from the National Science Foundation, to accurately assess the feasibility of these innovations. Our team has extensive expertise and experience in quantitative methodology and research and development of instructional simulation games, spanning fields from science learning to training of emergency responders. Mosaic ATM will deliver commercial products based on our existing technology in the 2007 calendar year which will provide a test bed for future research.
