Research Institution

The Dakota Learning Project uses computer gaming to address the problem of low mathematics achievement of American Indian children in rural persistent poverty counties. Students solve mathematical problems in a 3-D virtual world that teaches, tests and tracks. Correct answers allow students to continue game play, wrong answers route students to instructional videos, web pages or apps to teach the missed concept. Statistical reports are available to track performance at the student, classroom or school level. All students will be tested at the beginning and end of the semester. Students in grades 4-6 who play the game will be compared with students from similar schools who take the standard mathematics class.
