  12. 12. Self Directed Learning
  13. 13. Self Directed Learning “One player explained how he hosted a sleepover party to study maps and plan an attack: We (Korea and Japan) saw how close Greece was and figured that Australia had to be closer so we got out maps, I have this big map (at home), and we built a galley with settlers and were going to create a civilization and research to sail to Greece to make a secret attack on Levi”. Squire
  14. 14. Time Management
  15. 15. Time Management “Some students will bury themselves in a game like this for hours on end. The key for them, the essential life lesson they must learn, is balance. How to manage and limit their work in rich semiotic spaces to leave room for the rest of their lives.” Dikkers
  16. 16. vu Multiple models of feedbck
  17. 17. Information Literacy
  18. 18. Information Literacy “Jason, like all participants checked out at least one book from the library and brought books on his favorite civilizations to camp.”
  19. 19. Information Literacy “Jason, like all participants checked out at least one book from the library and brought books on his favorite civilizations to camp.” “Going back and forth between games and history was a primary motivation for Monroe and he developed a particularly interesting style of game play. He would bring his social studies book and literally “replay” history by re-enacting events, like Columbus sailing to America, in-game.” Squire
  20. 20. Communication Literacy
  21. 21. Communication Literacy “Participants regularly created their own game scenarios for the program. They experimented with different starting points for civilizations, rates of game play, and resource allocations. For these students, the desire to modify games was not a distant and abstract goal, but rather a natural outgrowth of their desire to entertain friends, express themselves, and achieve status in their community.” Squire
  22. 22. Problem Solving
  23. 23. Problem Solving “To his surprise, [he] was randomly assigned a starting location on a remote, large and fertile island. Immediately, he stopped making military units and built settlers, workers, and improvements for his cities. He excitedly explained to researchers: “I’m safe because no one can attack me until they invent ‘Map Making’.” He then focused on preparing his civilization’s infrastructure for the Middle Ages” Squire

  26. 26. Global Awareness
  27. 27. Global Awareness Interviewer: Were the Vikings sort of isolated, were they on an island? Jason: Well, Vikings were up in the Netherlands, but then they also controlled Iceland and the northern tip of the United Kingdom. They were kind of isolated… If they are sailing, they… go to different islands, and if there are no people there, they will leave guys there to start building up cities... They’ll just keep on taking over the land.  If there is a village in their way, they will destroy the village. Squire
