Meeting for Schools Interested in Gaming Pilot with Zoran Popovic

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This meeting will focus on the details of commencing in-school trials of early math games capable of adjusting to each student and providing detailed assessment of learner's conceptual understanding of Common Core concepts.  Some of our early findings show that just two hours of voluntary game play can enable a fifth grade student to solve complex linear algebraic equations on a written post-test.   The games in the trial cover fractions, proportional reasoning and algebra.  We will describe the current ongoing trials and how schools and districts in Minnesota can take part in these trials as early as next January, or in the second round next fall.  The meeting will describe multiple ways games can be used in classroom and out of school, and how a teacher portal is currently developing a teacher community capable of developing a new just-in-time teacher development through sharing the most effective interventions on a targeted micro-concept level.
