From the Education Arcade at MIT comes The Radix Endeavor, a multiplayer online game targeted at improving mathematics and science understandings and engagement in high school students.  In the game, players take on the roles of scientists and mathematicians to explore and explain a virtual game world.  Tasks in the game are designed for a diverse group of learners and emphasize inquiry and exploration.  In this workshop participants will play the game and learn about how it can be implemented in various classroom settings.  The workshop will begin with an overview of the project and detail how in-game tasks are aligned with the Common Core State Standards for math and the Next Generation Science Standards for biology.  Based upon subject area or interest, participants will play through sections of the game.  Following game play and small group discussion, a large group discussion will focus on professional development.  This workshop is most appropriate for high school math and biology teachers, though other educators (technology teachers, department supervisors, etc.) are very welcome to attend. Participants are expected to bring their own computers or tablet.

Location:  Inn Wisconsin West
