Play2Connect: Research Experience + Course Credit for ASU Undergrad and Grad Students

Play2Connect: Bringing Families Together Through Gaming

The Play2Connect project is looking for undergraduate OR master’s students who are interested in understanding the research process and developing their research skills in out- of-school settings. The focus of the research experience will be on investigating how families learn together at home, in museums, and other after school settings using digital media technologies, in particular video games. In addition to gaining research experience, students will gain insight into how learning takes place beyond the classroom, and how our understanding of such informal learning is inspiring innovative activities in school.

You will be working with Professors Elisabeth Hayes and Sinem Siyahhan in the Center for Games & Impact, Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College on a research project that is part of a national study of family media engagement.
