  • 1. Games and Simulations
    as
    Learning Technology Tools
    Presented by-
    Diana Focht
    LTMS 510 – Learning Technologies and Solutions
  • 2. GOAL
    Introduce you to games and simulations, as learning technology tools, so that you can begin to explore ways in which you can incorporate them into your work environment.
  • 3. Objectives
    • Offer a description of games and simulations.
    • 4. Describe the history of games and simulations.
    • 5. Identify the purpose of games and simulations,
    as learning tools.
    • Present the leading tools for the creation of games and simulations.
    • 6. Discuss considerations for the design, development
    and implementation of games and simulations.
  • 7. Games & Simulations Survey
  • 8. What is a GAME?
    “A structured activity in which two or more participants compete within constraints of rules to achieve an objective.”
    (American Society for Training and Development)
  • 9. What is a Simulation?
    “An operational model, using selected components, of a real or hypothetical process, mechanism or system.”
    (American Society for Training and Development)
  • 10. “Simulations and games are teaching and learning methods in which participants are directly involved in making decisions and learning from the outcomes of these.”
    (Society for the Advancement of Games and
    Simulations in Education and Training)
  • 11. So what is the difference between
    a Game and a Simulation?
    VS

  • 12. Genres of Games
    -Action -Fantasy role playing
    -Fighting -Adventure
    -Driving or flying -Multiplayer
    -Sports -Massively multiplayer
    -3D Shooter role playing
    -Card or board -Combination
    -Strategy
  • 13. Genres of Simulations
    • Branching stories
    • 14. Interactive spreadsheets
    • 15. The virtual lab
    • 16. Minigames
  • Serious Games vs. Casual Games
    A serious game is an interactive computer application, with or without a significant hardware component, that-
    • Has a challenging goal;
    • 17. Is fun to play and/or engaging;
    • 18. Incorporates some concept of scoring;
    • 19. Imparts to the user a skill, knowledge,
    or attitude that can be applied in the real world.

  • 30. Why use Games & Simulations as a Learning Tool?
    Games have many attributes that are associated with how people learn-
  • Leading Tools for the Development of Games
  • 35. Leading Tools for the Development of Simulations
  • 36. Design Considerations for Games & Simulations
  • 37. Development Considerations for
    Games & Simulations
    Overseeing the asset list
    Adhering to production schedule & tracking project
    Managing the human resources
    Being flexible and responsive to needs
    Coding for platforms
    Utilizing a game engine
    Performing quality assurance
  • 38. Implementation Considerations for
    Games & Simulations
    Equipment
    Development
    Resources
    Support Resources
    Facilities
    Integration with Curriculum
  • 39. “Games are still in an early stage of evolution.
    Although they can be effective learning environments, not all games are effective nor are all games educational. Games are now being designed based on learning theory and research. Their effectiveness rests on the massively multiplayer immersive worlds they create, where learners ‘learn to be’ and a social network surrounds the learner. The time has come for games to be reintegrated with education (learning), ending a longstanding rift
    between work and play.”
    (Diana Oblinger)
