I confess… I played hours and hours on the five Myst problem solving games… Using them at school? Why not? (Mrs. M)

 

The Myst series of computer games can be extremely valuable teaching tools. The characters, landscapes and storylines used in the game can all be used to enhance learning in a wide range of curriculum areas.

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, July 3, 2013 3:53 AM

"When strategies for winning simultaneously result in learning, you’ve got yourself a good edugame. It was crucial to develop a natural symbiosis between game objectives and learning objectives. Gameplay can’t be a mere tool toward unrelated educational goals—but neither can it be tangential to (or, worse, distractive from) those goals. In D&Dis, six Skills—Consistency, Rigor, Research, Rhetoric, Precision, Skepticism—count as in-game strengths to defeat the Dread Aesiphron, but also as the intended curricular outcomes."

A Primer On Using Games To Teach - TeachThought

A Primer On Using Games To Teach - TeachThought | ESL  interactive games and gamification | Scoop.it

"A key element to ensuring any successful pedagogy is student engagement.

 

However, keeping students motivated and actively involved can be difficult. Besides the basic challenges of maintaining students’ interest and participation in class, today’s teachers also have to deal with growing numbers of students and the increased distraction from smart phones and other personal devices.

 

One good way to keep students engaged in the learning process is by varying class exercises to include a combination of lectures, individual assignments, group work, computer activities, videos, and other pedagogical tools like games. Games are interactive, fun, and appealing to most students, and they also offer a number of specific benefits to the learning process."
