ALTEC has been instrumental in developing a number of educational games. Although initially designed for a Web browser, most of them are playable on the iPad. The first game to be shown is Reason Racer. Designed to help Middle School science students learn and practice scientific argumentation and critical thinking skills. This multiplayer game features a series of arcade-like activities followed by a scored discussion activity designed to get students thinking about the process of making an argument. Next we will demonstrate a series of skill-based games from Arcademics designed to help students practice basic skills in math and language arts. Finally, we will discuss how to use the reports from both games to direct remediation and plan future instruction.
