GlassLab Today we launched an exciting new research and development initiative in partnership with Electronic Arts that aims to transform learning and assessment practices through digital games. Named GlassLab, the effort will explore the potential for digital games to serve both as potent learning environments and as real-time assessments of student learning. The Lab’s work is focused initially on assessments that track learning gains in middle school students against the Common Core State Standards and key twenty-first-century skills, like systems thinking, perseverance and creative problem solving. Located on the Redwood Shores campus of Electronic Arts near Redwood City, California, the Lab will draw on top Silicon Valley talent to produce innovative digital games, both modifications of existing commercially successful titles as well as original mini-games designed and developed at the Lab. Check out this video interview about GlassLab. Read more about the work of GlassLab.

Master them, and you are that much closer to an A+! Note: All of these definitions are my re-wordings of dictionaries and grammars.
