Date Posted: Mon Jun 15 2009

A presentation on the Selene videogame research has been included in the proceedings of the Society for Information Technology and Teacher Education International Conference 2009.

Dr. Beverly Carter, professor in the Wheeling Jesuit University Computer Science Department, presented a paper at the conference held in March. The paper, "Enhancing Science Education Through Instructional Games That Prepare Students for Knowledge Acquisition," was coauthored by Laura Wilbanks, a teacher whose students have taken part in the Selene game, and Dr. Debbie Denise Reese, senior educational researcher at the Center for Educational Technologies and principal investigator on the CyGaMEs project funded by the National Science Foundation to carry out research into videogame learning, design, and assessment that first began with the NASA-funded Selene project.
