Game Architecture: Delivering Meaningful Learning Experiences: Learning Solutions Magazine

Game Architecture: Delivering Meaningful Learning Experiences: Learning Solutions Magazine | Games and education | Scoop.it

Recent research has challenged the traditional assumption that games are the antithesis of serious work (see the References at the end of this article). Some characteristics of games can be used creatively to close a knowledge gap, deliver skill training, or create a change of attitude by means of contextualized practice, invitation to action, and self-assessment of decisions. Therefore, games emerge as an interesting alternative to offer more meaningful and engaging learning experiences.

Computer Simulation For Geography Education ~ New Learning Times

Computer Simulation For Geography Education ~ New Learning Times | Games and education | Scoop.it

by Ching-Fu Lan

 

"The world is becoming more connected than ever, but students' interest in learning geography, one of the most important foundations for understanding global issues, is declining. Drawing on research that suggests computer simulations are effective tools to engage students in meaningful learning, the authors explored the potential of the computer simulation game Global Village, a virtual world developed in the Quest Atlantis game platform, for geography education."
