Description

The objective of this award is to support the development of a clearer operationalization of the two constructs “projective reflection” and “possible selves.” These potentially transformative ideas have the potential of linking strands of research from creativity, inquiry and identity in the context of game design and game play.

The project will convene a workshop of leading researchers in the learning sciences, experimental design, instrumentation, and game design to advise on how these ideas can be refined to construct dependent measures and guides to observation of behavior.

The longer-term broader impact of the work will be to lead to richer instructional electronic games, and more valid and reliable indicators of learning.
