Young to Collaborate on Multi-disciplinary HI-FIVES Program
This program is expected to produce educational video games that can be distributed nationally, lead teachers who can conduct workshops for teaching other teachers how to create the video games, and an instructional guide for integrating the game-developing software into standards-based instruction. Pilot simulations of this project are expected to reach more than 4,620 middle school students within the 3-year duration of this grant.
The HI FIVES program is funded through a $1.2 million NSF grant to the College of Education. It is a collaboration of the Science Education program, Computer Science, DELTA (Distance Education and Learning Technology Applications), and the NC Department of Public Instruction. The lead Principal Investigator is Dr. Len Annetta, assistant professor of science education.
