Alfredo Corell's insight:

el fenómeno de gamificación es imparable. Se gamifican las empresas, se gamifica la enseñanza.


En tiempos de crisis es importante que el trabajador se sienta valorado. Y tal vez sea esta una de las razones del atractivo de la gamificación en España. “En momentos como este, hay una necesidad de aportar nuevos valores y de sacar los negocios adelante”, coincide Joan Arnedo, profesor de la Universitat Oberta de Catalunya (UOC).

Game-Based Storytelling

Game-Based Storytelling | Create, Innovate & Evaluate in Higher Education | Scoop.it
All games tell stories. Unlike other media (books, television, film), the interactivity puts the player in the role of protagonist. Writing games can be quite complex and involve more than characters
Alfredo Corell's insight:

In games, the player makes decisions based on the perspective of someone else. This differs from other more passive media, like film, novels and television, where the viewer is the observer. Giving students an opportunity to reflect on games they've played, while weaving in class content, can add a layer of fun and authenticity!

Games Based Situated Learning – A Contradiction?

games-ED (Games Based Learning)

Marrying up to Situated Learning Theory

 

The first part of the series will introduce briefly some of the theories that underpin our products and games based learning at large. The main focus of this series is Games Based Situated Learning, which we have discussed before, but several years ago and very briefly. I will also try to uncover whether Situated Learning can actually occur through games and simulations, i.e. is that situated enough?

I will then introduce one of our games-ED products: the learning simulation Sustainaville. I will explain the simulation and how it is used in a workshop including the plan > do > review stages.

The final and main part of the series will essentially be a judgement of Sustainaville using some theoretical principles outlined in the first part of the series (put forward by Jan Herrington and Ron Oliver, 1995). This checklist can be used to judge other serious games and learning simulations in a similar way. We will back up our judgements with both qualitative and quantitative feedback from our workshops.
