Calling all educators, student teams, gamers, programmers, and creative individuals! The Innovation Math Challenge is for anyone who has an idea for creating fun and engaging math educational media.
WGBH Educational Foundation is seeking up to 100 educational media digital resources. Digital media contest submissions (including videos, games, interactives, infographics, and manipulatives) should be directed toward middle school students and loosely aligned with the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics. The digital resources selected will be showcased on PBS LearningMedia as part of a middle school math resource collection.
WGBH is looking for content that engages a wide range of students by reflecting a wide range of culturally responsive perspectives and learning styles.
Digital resources should be engaging, rich in content and context, and go beyond strictly procedural teaching. In other words, no talking heads.
