Why (And How) To Start Learning Video Game Design - Edudemic

Why (And How) To Start Learning Video Game Design - Edudemic | Game Design & Game Based Learning | Scoop.it

By Jeff Vance

 

"Multimedia Fusion 2 is a highly powerful and visual (and free!) tool that can give students very quick results. Within minutes of picking up the tool and a minimal amount of instruction, students are well on their way to seeing results of their efforts. The programming logic for a game in a visual tool like Multimedia Fusion is done with the mouse by creating events and directing what actions happen when the event is true. Multimedia Fusion is a true object oriented programming system.

 

"Educators that have introduced video game design and development into the classroom have noticed some very interesting benefits to the students. Students who were not interested in computer programming before have suddenly become interested in using computers to create video games. Since video game design incorporate math, logic, creative writing, and computer programming among other skills, thus the student ends up learning a lot of diverse subject matter."

"Lots people want to get started with game based learning, gamification and serious games in their training. We’ve been curating game related content for over a year and a half while conducting our own research and case studies. Here are 100 articles related to games and learning. Some of them are research-based, while others just offer an interesting perspective to spark discussion. Take what you need and share this with a colleague."

I have recently been working with organizations on how the introduction of gamification into their training and development strategy plans for employee skill development.  The interesting thing as well is the application of the concepts to both hard and soft skills, that allow for returning to the results in the future as well as updating of skills as the individual progresses.

Ci sono moltissimi games finalizzati all'apprendimento, da quelli che stimolano la discussione, a quelli basati sulla ricerca.
