Abstract: Faculty and Doctoral Students in a Learning Design and Technology program have been researching and studying instructional design models over the last year in light of current changes in learning and design theory. This work is part of a year-long study related to answering the question: How can a digital learning resource be designed to facilitate constructivist learning? This paper is focused specifically on the application of several newer instructional design models to the development of math game modules in two NSF-sponsored Discovery K-12 projects (# 0918794, # 1503507). Modules in this learning games project are based on researched conceptual gaps in elementary and middle school mathematics and the development of game-based and inquiry models for addressing these gaps.
