ARIS Global Summit – Get the Data!

  • Description: How do you determine a game’s learning impact if every student plays the game and there isn’t any control group? How can you conduct in-game data assessment without breaking the magic circle of gameplay? Strategies and ideas for data collection learned during a two year mixed methods, design-based research project using an ARIS game will be presented.

ISTE Conference – Moravian History Mystery: Elementary Game-Based Learning About Colonial America  

  • Description: Game-based learning presents unique teaching opportunities, evoking students’ intrinsic motivation, social learning, and drive to mastery. We present an augmented reality mobile game played by 2nd graders studying colonial American history. Students scored higher on game-related test items than non-game-related items, demonstrating the game’s effectiveness.

GLS Conference – Moravian History Mystery: An Outside Augmented Reality Game for Elementary History

ARIS Global Summit Putting the “AR” in Farm: Baaaaad or Good?

  • Co-Presenter: Dr. Denise Bressler
  • Description: A field trip to a farm with goats, and chickens, and cows – oh my! But wait, I get to use an iPad and augmented reality too? This session will provide a quick overview of a farm field trip where 100 4th graders learned about being farmhands through live demonstrations with farm staff. Students experienced a fence-making activity, petting baby goats, and even looking at real goat poop under a microscope to inspect it for parasites! An ARIS activity scaffolded their mission, added some flair, and directed them to each station. Did augmented reality actually augment the experience or would “regular” reality be equally as effective or (yikes!) even better in this scenario? The presenters are “on the fence” – so help us decide!
