MMVPoster Draft1

leave a comment »

We were given three days to submit a poster for our thesis, and we weren’t so sure of the things to include in the poster. Nonetheless, we were able to come up with this (angge’s masterpiece :D) :

mmv poster 🙂

For now we have to wait for our advisers’ comments. 😀

plans for the fourth..

leave a comment »

For our fourth game, we decided that the topic would be on identifying numerical place values.  At first we thought of the don’t-let-the-mosquito-get-to-the-kid kind of game, where in the player must answer the question by splatting the mosquito with the correct answer before it bites the child. But we wanted the game to be more child friendly so we changed the mosquitoes to ants, and the child to cake.  The process is still the same, the ant with the correct answer will be splatted.

The interaction that we plan to use here are using the directional buttons of the wiimote to choose the right ant and then swinging down to splat the ant.

Sample screenshots to follow.

Still, this is subject to change.

After almost 5 months of working our ass (asses?) out, together with the MyMathVenturesHS group, we had our final thesis presentation.  Lots of things and details on our mini games have changed, from the logic, to the design, to the features of the games.  Read the rest of this entry »

first game done?

leave a comment »

We are almost done with our first game, and we also started packaging the classes that we are using including those that we are going to test for “reusability”. We just had a problem when running the program on VMware, but it does run properly on other machines. We still can’t figure out what’s wrong. It does not return errors, so we’re really clueless about it not running on VMware.

RRL#2 Game-Based Learning

leave a comment »

Game-based learning or GBL refers to the different kinds of software applications that use games for learning and educational purposes. If used effectively and in a coherent and relevant way, can support both the option of more choice for how the learner can learn as well as offering the potential for personalizing  the learning experience. Moreover, it also offers a way of integrating a range of different learning tools into a more coherent view of learning from the learner’s perspective.  However, it relies upon two factors: readiness of the learner to adapt to a new learning tool and the correct level of institutional support.

reusability!!!!!!!

with one comment

We presented our almost done mini game in front of Prof. Solamo and Prof. Feria(Dr. Caro was not there when we presented).This game was what kept us busy for the long weekend, nearly depriving us of sleep. Aubrey and I were able to finish this mini game. But our advisers were not satisfied with our output. Read the rest of this entry »
