Ed Games Need To Fill in Assessment Gaps To Be Fully Useful

A joint study on game-playing in K-12 has found that educational game developers could improve the learning impact by making a few changes. The "A-Games Project" found that the tracking of student learning and linkages between game activities and curriculum could be better. The project is a joint effort of theUniversity of Michigan School of Information and School of Education and New York University's Steinhardt School of Culture, Education and Human Development.

A-GAMES stands for "Analyzing Games for Assessment in Math, English language arts, Social Studies and Science." Among the games used in the study are these:Do I Have a Right? from iCivics; the Sports Network 2 from ClassroomCitizen Science from Games+Learning+Society; and Guts & Bolts from BrainPOP. All are freely available online.

What happens when computers, not teachers, pick what students learn?

As more schools adopt blended learning – methods that combine classroom teachers and computer-assisted lessons – some are taking the idea a step further and creating personalized programs of instruction. Technology can help teachers design a custom lesson plan for each student, supporters say, ensuring children aren’t bored or confused by materials that aren’t a good fit for their skill level or learning style.
