Emotionally Intelligent Math Software for Kids | SMARTeacher

Emotionally Intelligent Math Software for Kids | SMARTeacher | Simulation Education | Scoop.it

This is a math software program that reinforces skills taught in class and helps improve learning and retention. It is an emotionally intelligent educational game, which takes game based learning to a new level. This game monitors and responds to a student's emotions, in order to enhance the rate at which they learn. It utilizes a sensor such as a simple wristband, which monitors physiological feedback. This feedback helps personalize learning. For example, the game can automatically provide help if students are feeling frustrated, and it can challenge them if they are bored. It provides scaffolding and keeps students in the flow or heightened learning state.
