  • Cyberchase Fractions Quest
    Date: 05/01/2017
    Resource Category: Project Descriptions
    Purpose: This project team will fully develop and test Cyberchase Fractions Quest, a web-based mathematics game for students in grade 3 and 4. Research shows that inadequate understanding of fractions can persist from early grades through higher education, and that success in fractions predicts future success in mathematics and other STEM subjects ... »
  • Development of an Online, Multi-Challenge Platform for K-12 Students
    Date: 05/01/2017
    Resource Category: Project Descriptions
    Purpose: This project team will fully develop and test an open online platform that posts student-led engineering project challenges for Kindergarten to grade 12 classrooms. Research demonstrates that improved attitudes towards engineering in elementary and middle school are imperative to increase the pursuit of STEM degrees and careers. This ... »
  • SuperChemVR: A Immersive Reality Chemistry Game
    Date: 05/01/2017
    Resource Category: Project Descriptions
    Purpose: This project team will fully develop and test SuperChemVR, a virtual environment integrated within a Virtual Reality (VR) headset for an immersive exploration of a chemistry lab. While chemistry labs offer the benefits of hands-on experimentation to help students learn abstract concepts, they are costly to maintain, supervise, and pose ... »
  • Mission US: Time Snap
    Date: 05/01/2017
    Resource Category: Project Descriptions
    In prior research and development (in part supported by a 2014 ED/IES SBIR award), the project team developed Mission U.S., a series of web- and app-based games for topics in U.S. history. With this Phase I funding, the team will extend Mission U.S. by developing and testing a prototype of a virtual reality (VR) platform to immerse students in ... »
  • StoryWorld: Formative Evaluation Dashboard for English Language Learners
    Date: 05/01/2017
    Resource Category: Project Descriptions
    In prior research and development, the project team developed a StoryWorld, a computer-based intervention for English Learners (ELs) that presents children oral and written narratives in English while also providing the information in their first language. With this Phase I funding, the team will develop and test a prototype of a web-based ... »
  • CloudLab: Software Development for Hands-On Science Learning
    Date: 05/01/2017
    Resource Category: Project Descriptions
    In prior research and development, the project team developed PocketLab, a set of web-based hands-on science simulations for middle school classrooms. With this Phase I funding, the team will develop and test a prototype of CloudLab, a classroom management platform to extend the functionality of PocketLab. The prototype will include a portal so ... »
  • Toddler App and Cane System: An Innovative Program for Teaching Orientation and Mobility to Toddlers with Vision Impairment
    Date: 05/01/2017
    Resource Category: Project Descriptions
    With this Phase I funding, the project team will develop and test a prototype of the Toddler App and Cane which is intended to improve functional and adaptive school readiness skills for toddlers with visual impairments. The prototype will include a wearable hardware-based cane that wraps around a child's waist and provides tactile and audio cues ... »
  • A Collaborative Interface for Teacher-Student Interaction in Virtual Environments
    Date: 05/01/2017
    Resource Category: Project Descriptions
    In prior projects, including a 2015 ED/IES SBIR award, the team developed two immersive multiplayer virtual game environments. In Eco and Colony, middle school students collaboratively apply scientific practices within the virtual worlds to address challenges, such as the availability of resources and energy and maintaining clean water. With this ... »
  • Cyberchase Fractions Quest
    Date: 05/01/2016
    Resource Category: Project Descriptions
    In prior research and development, the project team and partners developed Cyberchase, a multimedia story-based series for students to practice and learn math. Researchers will develop and test a prototype of a mobile app-based fractions game to be integrated within the multimedia series. The prototype will adjust to students of different skill ... »
  • Development of an Online, Multi-Challenge Platform that can Host Multiple K-12 Engineering Design Challenge Competitions Simultaneously
    Date: 05/01/2016
    Resource Category: Project Descriptions
    This project team will develop and test a prototype an online platform to facilitate engineering project challenges within K–12 classrooms across many schools.
