Interactivity in Learning: Using Video Games to Teach Children Correct Sleep Habits
Interactivity is an important part of student learning. It involves a pattern of input and response between the student and the educational material as the material itself is presented. New technologies from interactive visualizations to interactive virtual environments are introduced into the classroom in order to foster deeper learning. In order to capitalize on this deeper learning, I developed a video game targeted specifically towards children in Waco. By teaching children through interaction with a virtual environment rather than through traditional didactics, I hope to better instruct children in Waco about correct sleep habits and better sleep quality.
