Project Details


1. Using common play materials (i.e., cards, blocks), we will work with children, parents, and teachers to iteratively design a math game and in-game scaffolding for language and numerical skills---important foundations for math learning. 2. We will rigorously test the causal effects of the game on math concepts through an experiment, and quantitatively examine how language and numerical skills support math learning. 3. With parents' and teachers' input, we will qualitatively analyze children’s behaviors during game play to identify effective game elements and potential learning mechanisms. 4. To increase transparency and reproducibility of this research, we will preregister analyses and submit registered reports whenever possible. 5. To broaden the public impacts, we will work with stakeholders to share the game and findings through workshops, websites, social media, blogs, and platforms for open license materials.
