Combining artificial intelligence with educational research modeled after effective teachers, we make better educational games. Educational elements are integrated within the storyline. Problems don’t just fall from the sky, but are in context within the game – giving real-life examples of when knowledge/skills would be used. Getting answers wrong doesn’t just lead to more problems, but we teach the information and skills kids need to solve problems within the app. 7 Generation Games are developed by a team including a former math teacher, a statistician with a Ph.D. whose dissertation was on standardized testing, a rocket scientist (he’ll say, “I’m not a rocket scientist, just a physicist that did the radar for rockets!”) and a N.Y. Times best- selling writer. They’re build with classroom teachers and tested in school across the country.
