Title:

    Newtoon: learning science socially through cell phone game creation

Presenter(s)/Author(s):



Abstract:


    Newtoon is a prototype mobile phone and webbased activity enabling young people to create and play mobile phone games that embed physics learning. Game creation is in the hands of young people, creating java-based microgames via a webinterface that can then be downloaded and played on their own phones. Our user-trials in two schools provided insights into the opportunities of learning using mobile phones and games.
