MATEMATICA SUPERPIATTA: un videogioco a scuola! (Talk)
A videogame at school? Is that a joke? It is absolutely not a joke! SuperflatMath is a videogame made to guide children, boys and girls into the amazing world of Mathematics. In a sandbox environment you will gather, create and destroy blocks of numbers to solve puzzles of any kind.
The activities have been designed to engage pupils into Math Discussions and to cover specific Math subject for all classes from 8 to 13 years-old children. We will report our experience during a field trial with 250 pupils in Primary and Middle Schools during the usage at distance in the lockdown period.
