Dr. Valerie Shute, Mack and Effie Campbell Tyner Endowed Professor of Education, has partnered with Carney Labs to develop a computer game that teaches physics to students around the world. “Tomorrow’s workers need 21st century competencies that include being able to effectively solve hard problems, persist in the face of failure, and think creatively, critically, and systemically,” Shute said. “Our goal is to validly assess these 21st century competencies using games and other immersive learning environments as the main vehicle.”
