The Education Arcade – Games, Simulations and Tools for Playful, Powerful Learning

This website offers games, simulations and programming tools, curriculum, and online professional development courses in educational technology that demonstrate how advanced math, science, and humanities content can be effectively combined with state-of-the-art game play for deeper student understanding and engagement. Produced by researchers at The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and partners, game highlights include The Radix Endeavor (for middle and high school levels), an immersive virtual learning experience in which students conduct experiments to learn how systems in a virtual Earth-like world work and then collaborate to solve problems using math and scientific reasoning; and Ubiquitous Bio (for high school students), a series of four biology-themed games for mobile devices in which students explore topics in genetics, protein synthesis, evolution, and food webs. Teachers can access data generated by the games and use the data to inform future lesson plans.
