Training Numeracy and Basic Geometry in India
I have contributed to two ongoing projects that use games to train children's understanding of number and geometry concepts. The first explores the role that symbolic content, like language, as well as nonsymbolic content, like maps and arrays of objects, plays in training these skills. The second involves designing digital game materials with the goal of reaching millions of Indian schoolchildren through mobile devices within 5 years. These projects are collaborations between the Harvard Lab for Developmental Studies, J-PAL, Pratham, Ekstep, and the University of Chicago Center in Delhi.
