Visitors and Demos

digital_demo-10-25-13-07Bill and Jillian chat with Jarmo Viteli, one of the visitors from TERC, Northern Illinois University and several major universities in Finland who all stopped by our office last week. The visit was part of ongoing project work with a team of US (NSF-funded) and Finnish investigators who are working together to leverage their currently funded work in measurement of game-based learning to take on radically different approaches to the measurement of STEM learning. The Finnish-US Network (FUN) applies their combined novel and interdisciplinary perspectives on learning to study the relationship between engagement and STEM learning outcomes in transmedia games.

Our visitors got to see presentations and demos from producers Bill, Marisa, Jillian, Melissa, and Gentry and designers Dan and Tara on ongoing projects including Peep and the Big Wide World, Next Generation Preschool Math and Design Squad Nation, and new projects including Plum Landing and Tales from the Poisoner’s Handbook.
