(SIMS: Some train relationships with it) • SANDBOX enables AGENCY+STYLE: Wide scope of actions in a open world to express oneself (GTAIV: The gore is not decisive, but the possibility to act freely in the simulation of a city) and give player the feeling of control, influence • TRY YOURSELF and self-actualize, act out • THRILL/SUSPENSE through action&story: uncertain ending „Will I make it?“ • RESOLVE CONFLICT • RELIEF

  11. 11. | 11 SAFER INTERNET FORUM 2010 Lessons learnt from TAKOMAT GmbH | SAFER INTERNET FORUM 2010| Luxembourg 22 OCT 2010 FINDINGS & INSIGHTS: ELEKTRA‘s 4M‘s4M‘s • MMOTIVATION: • NEUROSCIENCE: Virtual 3D-Characters can establish para- social learning and enrich the encoding of learning content in the brain when they show believable emotions.
  12. 12. | 12 SAFER INTERNET FORUM 2010 Lessons learnt from TAKOMAT GmbH | SAFER INTERNET FORUM 2010| Luxembourg 22 OCT 2010 FINDINGS & INSIGHTS: ELEKTRA‘s 4M‘s4M‘s • MMOTIVATION: • PEDAGOGY: Parasocial dimension of learning: Link fate of game characters to the player‘s learning performance. • MEDIA PSYCHOLOGY: Background music fosters learner‘s motivation without distracting from learning task; Similarity- Attraction principle is valid for virtual characters; Character should have flaws and quirks (authentic); female players should be able to choose female player character
  13. 13. | 13 SAFER INTERNET FORUM 2010 Lessons learnt from TAKOMAT GmbH | SAFER INTERNET FORUM 2010| Luxembourg 22 OCT 2010 Motivation to influence the fate of avatar and NPCs Motivation to fulfill the learning task in order to help Lisa Disliking Enmity Identification Liking Caring Liking Caring Friendly and helping NPCs / Galileo, Lisa Avatar / George Hostile NPCs / Black Galileans Taking action / Learning Story links the fate of characters to learning tasks Lisa trapped behind a door George must open door In order to open the door, he must understand propagation of light Learning situations on propagation of light Door opens / Lisa is free • LEARNING & STORYTELLING: Link learning tasks with story
  14. 14. | 14 SAFER INTERNET FORUM 2010 Lessons learnt from TAKOMAT GmbH | SAFER INTERNET FORUM 2010| Luxembourg 22 OCT 2010 FINDINGS & INSIGHTS: ELEKTRA‘s 4M‘s4M‘s • MMICROADAPTIVITY: • COGNITIVE SCIENCE: Maintaining challenge and flow within a learning situation through adaptive interventions based on the skill state and learning behavior of the player in the situation • MMACROADAPTIVITY: • PEDAGOGY:Didactic Design of ELEKTRA Game covers 8 LEARNING EVENT MODEL • ExperimentsExperiments • Creates • Meta-LearnsMeta-Learns • Debates • ImitatesImitates • ReceivesReceives • Practices • ExploresExplores
  15. 15. | 15 SAFER INTERNET FORUM 2010 Lessons learnt from TAKOMAT GmbH | SAFER INTERNET FORUM 2010| Luxembourg 22 OCT 2010 FINDINGS & INSIGHTS: ELEKTRA‘s 4M‘s4M‘s • MMETACOGNITION: • PEDAGOGY: Metacognition was integrated as a pedagogical feature in a Game Design for the very first time. It enabled self- assessment (metacognition) and improved cognitive learning.
  16. 16. | 16 SAFER INTERNET FORUM 2010 Next Gen. LEARNING GAMES, part 2 TAKOMAT GmbH | SAFER INTERNET FORUM 2010| Luxembourg 22 OCT 2010 2008- 2010 658 pupils validated (until now) 658 pupils validated (until now)
  17. 17. | 17 SAFER INTERNET FORUM 2010 Lessons learnt from TAKOMAT GmbH | SAFER INTERNET FORUM 2010| Luxembourg 22 OCT 2010 FINDINGS & INSIGHTS: Didactic Game Design for constructivist learning • PEDAGOGY: Games as constructivist learning environments result in better learning compared to static learning content: Pupils learnt better in the game when the learning content was mediated through ACTION than through static text and images as in traditional school media. ⇒HOLY GRAIL OF LEARNING GAME DESIGN: Transform factual knowledge into procedural knowledge!
  18. 18. | 18 SAFER INTERNET FORUM 2010 Lessons learnt from TAKOMAT GmbH | SAFER INTERNET FORUM 2010| Luxembourg 22 OCT 2010 FINDINGS & INSIGHTS: Microadaptivity in personalized adaptive Learning • COGNITIVE SCIENCE+PSYCHOLOGY: Non-invasional assessment of the learner‘s cognitive performance and motivation in a learning situation. GAME CHARACTER TECHNOLOGY: The virtual character must be able to react interactively in a learning game situation and to provide adaptive hinting or motivational feedback to the learner.
  19. 19. | 19 SAFER INTERNET FORUM 2010 Lessons learnt from TAKOMAT GmbH | SAFER INTERNET FORUM 2010| Luxembourg 22 OCT 2010 FINDINGS & INSIGHTS: Macroadaptivity in personalized adaptive Learning • COGNITIVE SCIENCE+PSYCHOLOGY: Link the development of storytelling to the development of the learner‘s knowledge and to her motivational state. A pedagogical strategy decides on basis of the learner‘s assessment (skill state+motivation) what game scene and learning content should be presented next. ⇒ HOLY GRAIL OF INTERACTIVE STORYTELLING: There is still a debate between partners about a plot-based or character-centred approach, but both character engine and story engine are much further developed than comparable technologies in the game industry.

You want the young generation to solve the upcoming challenges of the 21st century? Then give them the power and means to do so. • LEARNING GAME DESIGN: In simulation games players always learn the game mechanics in order to master the game system. If the game mechanics incorporate all the physical, social, economical and ecological facts and interrelations of the complex topic , then they will learn it. Not as a list of facts, but as a complex systemic knowledge space.
  28. 28. | 28 SAFER INTERNET FORUM 2010 Lessons learnt from TAKOMAT GmbH | SAFER INTERNET FORUM 2010| Luxembourg 22 OCT 2010 FINDINGS & INSIGHTS: Games are scientific simulations – with a human touch! DLR-Scientist after finishing the design and development work on E.2010: „I have never seen such a simulation before. It combines scientifically correct data and models about the energy production, -supply and -transportation with the social, economic and ecologic implications!“
