Simple rules, complex behaviours: gamification and learning

Simple rules, complex behaviours: gamification and learning | Games and education | Scoop.it

Exploring the Factors Influencing Learning Effectiveness in Digital Game-based Learning

It was found that many factors interactively influence students’ effectiveness of knowledge acquisition in DGBL. Students’ learning motivation, learning ability, and playing skill could be key factors that collectively influence the effectiveness of knowledge acquisition in DGBL. Also, students’ learning motivation, learning ability, and playing skill were affected by their playing motivation, prior knowledge, as well as online game experience respectively. The results of this study may help teachers consider how effectively utilizing an educational game for enhancing students’ learning effectiveness in DGBL.
