MIT Unleashes New Online Game for Math and Science ~ Mind/Shift

MIT Unleashes New Online Game for Math and Science ~ Mind/Shift | EDUCACIÓN en Puerto TIC |

by Katrina Schwartz


"Now, a group of researchers in MIT’s Education Arcade are trying to harness the power of MMO games to teach high school students to think like scientists and mathematicians. Their game, The Radix Endeavor, is designed to be an educational game, and capitalizes on the interactions students can have as a way to build their knowledge and skills.


"Radix, as it’s known, is aligned to the Next Generation Science Standards for biology, focusing on topics like genetics, evolution, ecology and human body systems. In math, the game is aligned to the Common Core and has particular focuses on algebra, probability and statistics, as well as geometry. The researchers worked with Filament Games and are funded by the Gates Foundation for the three-year project."

Valve introduces Pipeline, a program for teens seeking careers in the gaming industry ~ joystiq

Valve introduces Pipeline, a program for teens seeking careers in the gaming industry ~ joystiq | EDUCACIÓN en Puerto TIC |

by Mike Suszek


"Valve recently introduced a program called Pipeline with the aim of providing guidance for high schoolers that are contemplating a future in video games. Pipeline will host content in the form of videos and a forum that will answer commonly-asked questions about careers in the gaming industry.

"Pipeline is an experiment to see if we can take a group of high school students with minimal work experience and train them in the skills and methods necessary to be successful at a company like Valve," the site notes. Pipeline is currently nothing more than a video and FAQ, but that will certainly change in due time."

Plethora of educational gaming sites that are geared towards elementary students. I've used and before with my Kindergartners. A center-orientated system could be effective in getting kids to rotate from computer to computer, entrenching them in different subjects such as reading, writing, spelling, and math.
