Hello, innovative educators!
As many of you know, there’s quite a number of projects GlassLab has in the pipeline for 2015.
It is critical to have educators, students and researchers involved throughout every step of the game development process. In order to create a high-impact game that addresses classroom needs, and we need your help!
If you are a Bay Area educator who is using iPads in the classroom, we would love an opportunity to collaborate with you.
What are the requirements?
– Access to a class set of iPads – at least ⅓ of the class, preferably 1:1 capable
– A full-time class period, during which we can implement game-based learning
How will these playtests help?
Local playtests enable us to observe and collect data in-person. We have educators all across the country helping playtest and field study GlassLab products, but face time enables us to receive new insights we otherwise may not receive through a computer screen.
If we can’t do local playtests, can we still participate?
Yes, of course! We’d love to find more ways to collaborate. Some ideas include:
– video tape or recording of playtesting, or any work you do with students, with feedback on how the playtest went
– phone conversation to pre-brief or de-brief a lesson
– co-creation of materials that can be given to students
Your feedback is critical to helping create and improve new games and enhance learning outcomes for every person who uses them! Participation in the playtests come at no financial cost to you or your students.
If you and your students are interested in participating in playtests or upcoming major field studies, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible to reserve a spot!
Thank you very much!
