In 2011 and 2012, SSRC’s Education Research Program partnered with the Institute of Play (IOP) to support its educational initiatives on digital media and connected learning pedagogies. Specially, SSRC supported IOP as well as Learning Networks in New York and Chicago by assisting with formative assessments of these programs to guide institutional program development and improve social science measurement of these educational practices. The research activities were organized around several distinct components, including game design curricula, game and digital media production, and professional development curricula.
