Time Zone X

Educational games can engage students (Gee, 2007) to drive learning and intrinsic motivation (Przybylski et. al, 2012), and provide embedded assessment (Shute and Ventura, 2013). Time Zone X realizes these potentials within the broader context and learning opportunities of the popular educational website BrainPOP. With the core mechanic of sequencing events in history, and content that highlights causal relationships, Time Zone X encourages contextual reasoning spanning time periods and content areas while also providing formative assessment to guide further instruction.
