  7. 7. Hybrid educational worlds Examples of hybrid worlds Experiment Conclusions In this presentation... our thesis is that To achieve learning goals often the creation of complete virtual worlds is not needed In some cases, when students are given the necessary means and information to acquire the knowledge, skills and abilities, less rich virtual worlds could be sufficient.G.

  12. 12. Hybrid educational worlds Examples of hybrid worlds Experiment Conclusions Potential benefits Lower development costs Lower hardware requirements Lower time investment by educators creating the activity Students have to face a lower complexity Same (or even major) learning outcomes? Supports other capabilities? (team work, etc.)G. Robles, J. Fern´ndez, J. M. Gonz´lez-Barahona, J. Ramiro a a Hybrid Educational Worlds

Hybrid educational worlds Examples of hybrid worlds Experiment Conclusions Comparison of learning outcomes Learning outcome Guided tour eAdventure m-gymkhana Campus knowledge Low High Medium Location knowlegde Medium Medium High Teamwork Low Low High Best choice Guided tour Guided tour Guided tour Table: Comparison of the outcomes of each learning activity. Best choice is the answer students gave to the answer ”With which activity do you think you would have learned more?”G. Robles, J. Fern´ndez, J. M. Gonz´lez-Barahona, J.

  20. 20. Hybrid educational worlds Examples of hybrid worlds Experiment Conclusions Conclusions Hybrid worlds can some times meet ambitious learning objectives, being more simple and faster to design and to implement. For certain aspects complete virtual worlds have shown better results. Educational scientists should consider the time devoted by teachers in their virtual world activities. Students often prefer the usual activity, even if the learning outcomes are poorer.G. Robles, J. Fern´ndez, J. M. Gonz´lez-Barahona, J. Ramiro a a Hybrid Educational Worlds
