“Beyond the traditional career paths that call for a background in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math, employers are looking for the skills that STEM helps to foster. A STEM education is desired across a wide range of sectors.”
Grade 3-6 students playing TVO Learn mPower, launch into a more sophisticated gaming experience. Players engage in Math and STEM challenges while creating their own customized Ontario town.The Math and STEM games encourage responsible citizenship and protection of the natural environment.
Each STEM game also includes a STEM Design Challenge. At each grade level, players apply some of the math skills practiced in the challenges to an authentic real-world task. The STEM challenges support problem solving, creativity, critical thinking, and citizenship. Each STEM challenge is grade specific, as they are designed to address one or more of the big ideas in Science/Social Studies from that grade’s curriculum.
There remains to be a lot of confusion in the education community around the term Digital Game-Based Learning. TVO Learn mPower teaches fundamental K-6 math and STEM skills while enabling students to have fun and learn more about the world around them. One of the foundations in the development of the TVO Learn mPower game is research around Digital Game-Based Learning.
