- Create and assess the merits of an authentic online biology game on students’ learning outcomes and motivation
- Offer field experience (i.e., within Vanier) to students in MicroMedia so that they can enrich their portfolio to present to potential employers
In BioLab: Digestion players will compete to break down starch in the mouth using enzymes. Through kinesthetic, auditory, and visual modes students will learn how enzymes break down complex starches using a Universal Design of Learning approach.
Biology students have put together the game scenario. Micromedia students will be creating the games, including illustrations, UX / UI, and this website with background information.
In Phase 1, ending August 2022
- students involved in the project will be giving feedback & responding to questionnaires
- students and other Vanier community members will early iterations of the games and give feedback
In Phase 2, slated for 2022-2023, the games will be used in classrooms, to reinforce learning and feedback will be gathered on the effectives of the games. This will lead to further game development and iterations.
