Full Sail Live recently participated in the 2011 DimensionU Educational Video Game Tournament, an event put together by educational video gaming company Tabula Digita and Orange County Public Schools.
40 grade-level teams from grades 3-8 had the chance to go head-to-head in a series of math-based video game challenges inside of Full Sail Live. Throughout the two-hour competition, more than 160 students navigated through several mathematical obstacles via Tabula Digita’s DimensionU educational game software, which is currently in use throughout the district as well as surrounding counties.
“By engaging in the tournament, Orange County joins the ranks of other progressive, academically-driven districts which are embracing the trend of combining traditional math competitions with advanced video game technology,” said Ntiedo Etuk, Chief Executive Officer of Tabula Digita. “It’s the new equation in the instruction of math.”
