Funding Opportunity for the Development and Evaluation of Educational Games
- I'm copying below information I received from a listserv. I thought
someone in this group might be interested or know of someone who is.
The US Department of Education's Institute of Education Sciences
(ED/IES) and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) plan
to release a joint-agency Phase I SBIR solicitation requesting proposals
for the development and evaluation of commercially viable education
technology games. The solicitation will likely include four (4) topic
areas, each focused on student learning. These topics include games to:
(1) improve learning in statistics and probability, (2) support English
learners, (3) support foreign language learning and to (4) support
computer science learning. Phase I awards will be up to $150,000, and
Phase I winners will be eligible to apply for Phase II funding in
amounts up to $900,000 one year from now. With questions or to discuss
possible project ideas before the solicitation is released on December
17, contact the ED/IES SBIR program manager Edward Metz at
