My Capstone Project: Uncover the factors to help measure how young children learn

Uncover new insights in early childhood education and how media can support learning outcomes.

PBS KIDS, a trusted name in early childhood education for decades, aims to gain insights into how media can help children learn important skills for success in school and life. We will use anonymous gameplay data from the PBS KIDS Measure Up! app, a game-based learning tool developed as a part of the CPB-PBS Ready To Learn Initiative with funding from the U.S. Department of Education. The goal is to predict scores on in-game assessments and create an algorithm that will lead to better-designed games and improved learning outcomes. With the prediction, we are hoping to aid in discovering important relationships between engagement with high-quality educational media and learning processes.

“With technology, I am most passionate about creating elegant algorithms to efficiently organize and digest data to advance our knowledge and experience.
