MetaMouse

MetaMouse is a technology that allows for more equitable sharing of existing computer-based educational games. It does this through two changes to the existing games:

  1. Each student participating is provided their own mouse and cursor. 
  2. The students must work together (using our novel "location voting" scheme) to make progress in the game.

These changes mean that all children are involved in the game, learning and paying attention. 

If you are interested in the software, please view our demonstration video.

We also have a talk discussing the research we've conducted, showing collaboration and discussion benefits with students in low-income Indian government schools. 

Lastly, if you wish to install the software. or view the source code, you can visit the source forge repository.
