UW-Madison graduate school research grant – yea!

As if having our second child on Friday weren’t good enough news in and of itself… I just found out that we received the University of Wisconsin-Madison Graduate School Research Grant. While only a small amount of money ($28,000 or so), it does support one project assistant for a year to help with data collection and analysis. This study will focus exclusively on MMOs for a younger audience (right now, Runescape) and will consist primarily of qualitative analyses of core practices such as (digital and print) literacy, science reasoning, and so-called “twenty-first century skills.”
