Design of a 3D Architecture Game-Based Learning Platform
NSF Award #: 1318784
This presentation introduces a design-based research project that examines how domain-specific learning can be intrinsically integrated in gameplay to foster the development of disciplinary proficiency while sustaining the playability. In particular, we examine the design of math integration in the quests of architectural design, resource allocation, trading, and building in Earthquake Rebuild, a 3D architecture game. This game aims to provide versatile representations and epistemic practices of mathematics for middle-school students.
