  2. Teaching children in developing countries English language learning Using games on mobile devices We noticed that children liked to collaborate when playing games We wanted to integrate that into the game by creating multiplayer games Background

  3. We want to determine if multiplayer games are even viable with the children We will start with a basic multiplayer game We will deploy it in India to see what the children’s initial reactions are Approach

  4. Designing for Unschooled Users • Use a traditional game that they are familiar with • Human Learning • Determine how multiplayer games affect their learning • Psychology of Persuasion • Determine if collaborative, multiplayer games can motivate them to play more • Can use this knowledge to design learning games for schooled users that they will be motivated to play Themes from the Course

  5. How comfortable children are with the idea of collaborative, mobile games Which design patterns will be most effective If collaborative games motivate children to play for longer How collaborative games affect their learning Learning Expectations

  6. Deploy it to children in India for the first iteration Qualitatively determine their reactions to and interactions with multiplayer games Quantitatively determine if children are more motivated to play multiplayer games Determine which aspects of the design children most liked Assessment of Success
