Beskrivning av projektet
Math anxiety is common among students. Therefore we developed a web-based math game service for schools. The service allows teachers to utilize engaging and effective math learning games in their teaching. The games of the service generate learning analytics that enhance teachers’ work and support development of students' math competencies. Thus, the free GameLab service is the most important result of this project. In general, we found out that 1) Math games can be effective and motivating learning and assessment solutions; 2) Teachers are interested in utilizing learning analytics that games generate; 3) Learning analytics increase the usefulness and acceptance of game-based learning; 4) Games generate emotionally rich learning experiences; 5) Game competitions can be used to effectively distribute new learning solutions to schools.
