Level up! A design-based investigation of a prototype digital game for children who are low-attaining in mathematics

Abstract:

In the UK, as many as 20% of children in primary schools are more than two years behind their peers in mathematics. Research-based intervention for such disadvantaged children has been shown to be effective but not always sufficient, such that alternative approaches might sometimes be necessary. One alternative might involve digital games.
