After an excellent evaluation of the first stage awarded and a successful application, the second stage of the project “Platform of digital games for the measurement of the provisions for cooperation for school coexistence” won one of the funds associated with the IV Technological Research Contest of the IDeA Program, for which it will have significant funding from the Fund for the Promotion of Scientific and Technological Development of Conicyt.

In this second stage of applied research, it is proposed to make a multiplatform version of the video game that allows to measure the cooperation provisions of students in basic education courses. This measurement will continue using game theory as a basis to detect cooperation networks in the courses – and thus detect possible bullying phenomena – but it will be available via the web to allow educational establishments to implement it autonomously, which in turn It will significantly increase the number of courses participating in this new stage.

The project, led by the researcher Carlos Rodríguez-Sickert co-director of the Research Center in Social Complexity and member of the Faculty of Government of our university, will also have the collaboration of the Faculty of Engineering, the San Bernardo Educational Corporation and the MIT Macro Conections Media Lab group, and it will be executed within 20 months.

Its adequate execution will allow to characterize the individual and collective cooperative capacities of groups belonging to the first cycle of basic education; provide participating establishments with a tool for the monitoring and management of school coexistence, and enrich the information available for academic research in the field of school sociability.

The team, in addition to being led by Carlos Rodríguez-Sickert and Camilo Rodríguez Beltrán, is composed of Jorge Fábrega, Pablo Billeke, Josefina Larraín, Tomás Pacheco, Cecilia Monge and José de la Cruz Garrido.
