New Orleans Charter Schools are using games aligned with the common core standards (English and math) to teach core content areas.
“DimensionU is a video game-based learning resource developed by Tabula Digita for K-12 students. The multiplayer 3D games focus on skills and content including math, literacy, science, and, beginning later this year, social studies and history. DimensionU allows students to form online study groups or play individually, win a spot on a leaderboard, or earn tokens that can be used to enhance their in-game characters. In the U Games National Scholarship Competition students can compete for prizes including iPods, gift certificates, and electric scooters by answering math questions.”
