Task-based mini-games for language learning

Shona Whyte:

If you're interested in gamification in language teaching and learning, see these slides for a presentation on "Challenges in specifying and evaluating a conceptual design for a task-based mini-game environment for language learning" at last week's EuroCALL 2012 conference in Gothenburg by Frederik Cornillie, Andrew Grenfell, Scott Windeatt, Piet Desmet.

 

The presentation covers issues of design and second language research, shows examples of games, as well as feedback from learners on games designed by the team in the delightfully named GOBL project (Games Online for Basic Language Learning) involving Dutch, Belgian, and English learners http://lands.let.ru.nl/~strik/research/GOBL/
