About "Talk to Me" – Teaching the Language of Math!
---------------------------------------------------

"Talk To Me" is a game that requires teams to guess math, language arts, or computer vocabulary terms from verbal, nonverbal and / or pictorial clues presented by a single teammate (the clue giver). "Talk To Me" creatively addresses the critical need to build language and communication skills in math classes that will allow students to "do math", and to also understand what "math does".


About The NEA Foundation's C2i: Gaming Challenge
------------------------------------------------

The NEA Foundation and Microsoft – US Partners in Learning want to know your best idea for how interactive technology and game-based learning can improve teaching and learning. According to Kids and Gaming 2011, the latest report from The NPD Group, 91 percent of kids ages 2-17 (approximately 64 million) play electronic games in the U.S., nearly a 10 per cent increase from 2009. The challenge for educators is how to harness this powerful tool. 

How it works
  • Submissions will be accepted from January 23 – March 5, 2012.
  • A proposed solution must effectively incorporate game-based learning.
  • Portal registrants can also review, comment and vote.
  • At the end of the review period, up to 10 solutions will receive $1,000 cash awards from the NEA Foundation.
Rating Criteria:

All entries will be scored on a 5-point scale (0 = lowest, 5 = maximum), by registrants of the Open Innovation Portal.

Awardees will be decided by the scores from the Open Innovation Portal community and the NEA Foundation.
