DreamBox has announced an educational video game which teaches math while kids have fun. The software's creators have used the latest teaching research to design a colorful, animated adventure game to educate children without being boring. A trio of elementary-school teachers worked with DreamBox's developers to build a system that teaches foundational math skills backed by educational research. The user's experience is personalized with information based on previous actions and decisions. Players are able to choose their character and theme to play scavenger hunt-style games to help their characters. The as-yet untitled game adapts to their level of math skill and the ways they learn best. DreamBox's co-founders, Lou Gray and Ben Slivka, both helped create Microsoft's first browser. They say their program is for students in kindergarten through second grade and sets itself apart from the other educational products flooding the market. "At the end of the day, when a child sits down to play, the child thinks it's a game," said Lou Gray. "The parents know the kids are seriously learning, but the kids think it's a serious game."
