Dear Teachers,

I am a student at Harvard Business School doing a research project on educational games for kids. Given the large amount of time students spend on the Internet today, we hope to develop an online game that supplements the educational elements they learn in your classroom in a fun and engaging way.

Your feedback as experienced educators will be invaluable as we move ahead with this project and we would love to keep you abreast of the progress. All information you provide is completely confidential and will not be shared with any third-parties.


* 1. Please provide us with some background on yourself.

* 2. What grade level do you currently teach?

* 3. In your opinion, how valuable are each of these learning elements to the online game that we are designing?

  Very important Somewhat important Not important
Creative self expression (e.g. user-generated content)
Collaborative problem-solving
Global and cross-cultural learning
Standards-based (or curriculum-specific) problems
Logic games (e.g. Brainage, Sudoku puzzles)

* 4. How attractive to you is a feature that would allow you to receive feedback on the performance of your students who play this game?

* 5. How do your students find out about which computer games to play?

* 6. What is the likelihood that you would participate if there was an incentive program where teachers could earn prizes/gift certificates for their classroom based on the number of students who sign up for the game (similar to Scholastic Book Club program)?

* 7. Would it be OK to keep you up-to-date on this project in the future and/or solicit additional feedback?

* 8. Please use this section to add any additional comments you have. Thanks!
