Three short research videos: Refraction, Foldit, and OpenDataKit

rfoTake a minute to check out these three new research project videos from UW CSE.  Topics covered are:

  • Refraction – discovering optimal pathways for learning early mathematics: Refraction is a research project of UW CSE’s Center for Game Science — focused on games for learning and for science.  It won the Grand Prize in the Disney Learning Challenge at SIGGRAPH 2010.
  • Foldit – a problem-solving scientific discovery game:  Foldit, a hugely successful protein folding video game created by UW CSE’s Center for Game Science, recently won the 2012 Katerva Behavioral Change Award.
  • OpenDataKit – making a difference with computer science:  UW CSE’s OpenDataKit (ODK) is a collection of free and open source tools, in use around the world, that make data collection easier and more flexible.
