    • Using Games to Inspire Creativity in Your Digital Natives
      Timothy Lewis, J. Elizabeth Gibbs, Margaret L. Rice and Richard L. Rice, Jr.
      Presentation for the National Educational Computing Conference (NECC) annual meeting, June 28-July 1, 2009, Washington, DC.
    • Gaming Research
      Today’s children are bombarded with multimedia based experiences everyday.
      “Reinventing Schools” Report
      National Academy of Sciences and the National Academy of Engineering,
      Students are described as the “Nintendo Generation” (http://www.nap.edu/html/techgap).
      They have been engaged with a variety of technologies most of their lives, including television, computers, video games, digital music, etc.
      They are often the ones to assist their teachers or parents in using technologies.
      Jenkins and Hinrichs (2006)
      View games as resources that offer teachers a way to “make their subject matter come alive for their students, motivating learning, offering rich and compelling problems, modeling the scientific process and the engineering context, and enabling a more sophisticated assessment mechanisms” (¶ 15).
      Research has shown that games can support skill development in a variety of areas: strategic thinking, planning, communication, application of numbers, negotiating skills, group decision-making, problem solving, sequencing, deductive reasoning, and memorization (Kirriemuir & McFarlane, 2004; McFarlane, Sparrowhawk, & Heald, 2002).
      In many computer games, users must learn a skill or concept to advance, whichmakes the user responsible for how the game progresses. This is different than when using other media for learning.
