Game-Based Learning: What it is, Why it Works, and Where it's Going

Game-Based Learning: What it is, Why it Works, and Where it's Going | gamify it | Scoop.it

Ken's Key Takeaway:

between 2006 and 2010, nearly one in five US workers retired and was replaced primarily by 18-40 year-olds who grew up with videogames.*  Job training can be designed to include elements of gamification that will reward active application of new knowledge.  It can be gamified without being childish or a waste of time.

Computer games and learning handbook | futurelab

Computer games and learning handbook | futurelab | gamify it | Scoop.it

"Aimed at teachers and those interested in using games with an educational intent, this handbook aims to provide some useful anchoring points for educators to make sense of the area and to develop practical approaches to the use of computer games as a medium for learning."

 

This is a very accessible overview of elements, theories, and examples of game-based learning for compulsory education. It also looks to be a decent source of references if you're looking for some literature pointers.

In the classroom: Digital game-based learning in second language acquisition. | gamify it | Scoop.it

Computer gaming has become a popular pastime with many of our students.  Yet just because an innovative technology is available does not mean that we should uncritically apply it toward second language acquisition.  This article illustrates how computer games have unique affordances that make them especially useful in content-orientated, culture and task-based foreign language curricula.
