Abstract
Digital educational games have been around for a long time and have shown to be pedagogically valuable. Unfortunately most games do not utilize technology to the extent that is possible. Not the least this applies to mathematical educational games for younger children.

This work aims to combine several educational scientific approaches using current technologies, which traditionally had been very difficult or not economically viable in the non-digital context. Especially we focus on combining Inclusion with Adaptive Learning while simultaneously use the beneficial properties that Learning by Teaching offers and find additional synergies to improve mathematical learning in preschool children.

Especially we focus on combining Inclusion with Adaptive Learning while simultaneously use the beneficial properties that Learning by Teaching offers and find additional synergies to improve mathematical learning in preschool children.

No studies have yet been carried out with this system, but it has opened up for several potential studies and offers a mean to carry out cost effective studies, including cross-cultural studies. (Less)
