Abstract: A team of US (NSF-funded) and Finnish investigators have come together to leverage their currently funded work in measurement of game-based learning to take on a radically different approaches to the measurement of STEM learning. The Finnish-US Network (FUN) are applying their combined novel and interdisciplinary perspectives on learning to study the relationship between engagement and STEM learning outcomes in transmedia games. The poster and this paper will detail the work between the two teams and provide valuable information about cross-country collaboration in general.
