We've Partnered with Macmillan Education!

We have exciting news to share today! We've partnered with Macmillan Education! Check out the press release:

Worth Publishers, an imprint of Macmillan Education, and MobLab, a leader in interactive games for the college classroom, today announced a strategic partnership to provide students and faculty with access to a library of hands-on experiments, enhancing the opportunity for active and experiential learning in the economics classroom. MobLab’s experiments actively involve students by having them produce their own data as they interact in simulated markets and games. This interactivity uniquely engages students in the application of concepts they are learning as they explore the inner workings of markets first-hand.

MobLab’s interactive economics games enable students to explore supply and demand, market interventions, imperfect competition, and more, on their computers, tablets, or phones. Economics faculty can customize each game to match the needs of their courses and receive real time results and data analytics that allow them to immediately show students how their choices relate to economic theory. “With MobLab, it’s easy for instructors to bring a variety of different experiments into their classrooms and even large lecture halls, allowing students to learn, first-hand, important economic principles and concepts based on their own decisions in these simulated markets and interactive games.” said Walter Yuan, CEO of MobLab. “When you get students’ curiosity level up, learning becomes so much more intrinsically motivated and effortless.”

“The pairing of textbook content written by exceptional economists with the interactivity and student-centered learning found in MobLab’s online games and experiments provides instructors with the richest of tools to incorporate in their classrooms,” said Charles Linsmeier, VP, Editorial, Science and Social Sciences at Macmillan Education. “Few things incentivize engagement more than when students have the opportunity to utilize data they have created themselves.”

Currently in use at over 800 schools globally and nearly 300 schools in the U.S., MobLab offers students access to economics experiments and games for Principles of Economics, Intermediate Microeconomics, Managerial Economics, Behavioral Psychology, Game Theory, and many more. By combining MobLab access with their Worth Publishers textbook, students receive a significant savings over purchasing the tools individually. By providing faculty with full access to supporting materials, instructors can easily incorporate the experiments into their lesson plans.
