Game Learning provides and powers thousands of digital learning games and simulations. Games on the Game Learning platform align with hundreds of learning objectives and 1,000+ learning standards. Games and simulations supplement traditional teaching in the subjects of Math, History, ELA, and Science.
Math Snacks are games that convey math in creative, visual, and applied ways. Mathematics educators, mathematicians, learning specialists, and game developers collaborated to develop and test materials and conduct integrated research activities, professional development of teachers, and investigation into the impact on learners.
Math Snacks is a multidisciplinary research and development project of New Mexico State University (NMSU), originally envisioned by NMSU professors Dr. Karin Wiburg and Dr. Barbara Chamberlin with additional direction by Dr. Karen Trujillo and Dr. Ted Stanford. The team collaborated on research over several years of the developed games, animations and learning tools, and all products were created by NMSU's Learning Games Lab.
Chamberlin, director of the Learning Games Lab, says "Players love these games, and our research shows the games transform learners and they can also change how teachers use games in math instruction. We're delighted to see the games reach more classrooms around the world, and we know this partnership will help more students gain confidence and ability in math."
"Moving the scholarly and creative works of NMSU researchers out for broader dissemination, and societal and economic good is at the heart of Arrowhead's mission," says Patricia Knighten of Arrowhead Center's Office of Innovation Commercialization. "Our new partnership with Game Learning, LLC is an exciting move towards realizing this vision."
The addition of Math Snacks to the Game Learning engine is one of several recent partnerships leading to the addition of more than 1,000 new games available on the educational platform.
