Educational design and technology company CuroGens Learning today announced a digital partnership with Gravity Board Games, a Danish organization that created the popular Hungry Higgs board game. CuroGens Learning is currently developing digitized software and a gamification plugin for Hungry Higgs that will enhance game-based learning worldwide.
As part of the partnership, CuroGens Learning will participate in the Hungry Higgs Tournament in Copenhagen, December 14, 2018, where approximately 120 children from area schools will compete in math using Hungry Higgs’ new teaching materials that reinforce student’s math competencies throughout the game. The tournament is being held by both Gravity Board Games and the Danish publisher Forlaget Matematik ApS, which is owned by Danmarks Matematiklærerforening, the country’s teachers’ association for math.
“We are thrilled that CuroGens Learning is partnering with us to digitally enhance the Hungry Higgs game,” said Michael Brommann, Co-founder of Gravity Board Games. “The company’s innovative software and gamification plugin not only succeeds in making learning more fun and engaging, it also helps inspire students worldwide to master their math skills.”
“It’s very exciting to find a company like Gravity Board Games, that shares the same learning beliefs that student and teacher engagement and empowerment mean a better outcome not just academically, but socially as well,” said Ole Hjorth, Chief Learning Officer for CuroGens Learning. “We look forward to a fun and effective partnership as we explore learning opportunities together.”
