Eric Klopfer, “Design Based Research on Participatory Simulations”

Thursday, November 14 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Professor Eric Klopfer, Director of the Scheller Teacher Education Program and The Education Arcade

Professor Eric Klopfer

An important part of the work done at the The Education Arcade is based on a process of Design Based Research (DBR). In DBR, we design products that are meant to fill real classroom needs and then iteratively test and refine them. Eric Klopfer and The Education Arcade are currently working on a set of “Participatory Simulations”: mobile collaborative systems-based games.

During this talk, attendees will have a chance to play a couple of these games and participate in a design discussion with one of the games that is currently in progress.

Professor Klopfer, currently Head of Comparative Media Studies/Writing, is Director of the Scheller Teacher Education Program and The Education Arcade at MIT. He is also a co-faculty director for MIT’s J-WEL World Education Lab.
