ESA Launches New Digital Learning Tool With iCivics

The ESA Foundation announced that DBQuest: Eyes on the Prize will take shape as a new free "digital learning tool" in conjunction with Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, a really important lady and head of iCivics which has prepared "next generation" citizens through curricula, said "cool." Not really, I don't know that.

Her iCivics team has contributed to research with universities including Arizona State University, Baylor University, and Tufts University. Filament Games aided with development efforts, though Justice O'Connor said:

Our rapidly changing world has made the age-old skills of reading for comprehension and understanding our country's historical documents more important than ever.

The ESA Foundation say that the first DBQuest challenge features content based on sit-in movements of the 1960s, though more will be added and that "iCivics plans to develop more… that will offer teachers an array of topics."
