The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review describes HCII faculty Matthew Kam’s work using cell phones games to teach English. ABC News also featured a segment about Kam’s work in India.
The Tribune-Review writes:
“It’s like the American equivalent of learning English by playing Grand Theft Auto or Halo.
“Matthew Kam, 32, a Carnegie Mellon University computer scientist, has developed computer games with audio and visual components that resonate with students learning English in rural India, China and Kenya.
“The games will be programmed into low-cost phones and presented so the students can hear and see spoken words and letters, Kam said.”
