, the multiplayer online math social learning game site, today launched its fourth game – Shapescape, which aims to help kids in grades 1-6 build an understanding of geometry.
Sokikom offers kids the ability to play individually or with a group. During individual game-play, kids go through a personalized math program that adapts to their abilities. If a student is stuck on a problem, the character, such as the friendly robot in Frachine, points them to a “help” button where the concept is reviewed. During team-based multiplayer games, students play together in real time and help each other complete math tasks.
Sokikom’s math social learning game has been awarded an Association of Educational Publishers’ Distinguished Achievement Award, a Best Educational Software Award (BESSIE) from ComputED Gazette and has been named to Dr. Toy’s list of Best Vacation Children’s Products. In addition, the company was named the Best Educational Gaming and Adaptive Learning Company at the National Education Innovation Summit, one of 2011’s Most Innovative Internet/Social Networking companies by TiE50 and earned a 2011 Success Award from the Arizona Small Business Development Network for contributions to the Arizona economy.
