A mixed reality learning simulation where students use their bodies to understand the variables in the physics equation for circular motion. Embodied learning made in conjunction with SMALLab Learning.
Simple Machines: Tour de Force
In this embodied game, the Kinect sensor was used to map the players arm movement to the speed and diameter of the bike gear. This is a powerful example of embedded play-like assessment. Made in conjunction with SMALLab Learning.
SMALLab (Situated Multimedia Arts Learning Lab) is an affiliate of Embodied Games, LLC. It is one of the first full body motion-capture learning platforms for K-12
The Winching Game
In this embodied gamed, the Kinect sensor was used to map the players arm movement to the speed and direction of a magnetic winch. Players needed to adjust their motion to pick up larger and smaller boulders. This is a powerful example of embedded play-like assessment. Research below showed that those who played the game better, also understood the concept of mechanical advantage better, as verified on a more traditional test. Made in conjunction with SMALLab Learning.
