Games are fun, exciting and engaging but do they belong in the classroom? Can games and simulations be artistic, creative and still be educational? There is evidence that students participating in game-based learning experiences have higher declarative knowledge, procedural knowledge and retention of instructional material than those participating in more traditional learning experiences. But, what elements make games and simulations appropriate for learning and how can those elements be integrated into the classroom. This keynote discusses the careful blending of creativity, artistry and technology to create effective game-like simulations for learning.

  • Various games and the problems the gamers had to solve.
  • Question? What was the goal of the game, Oregon Trail.
  • What was the goal of Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?
  • &amp;quot;It is clear that our new workforce is very comfortable with this approach,&amp;quot; says Bruce Bennett, chief of the analysis-training branch at the DIA&apos;s Joint Military Intelligence Training Center... The games themselves are actually a surprisingly clever and occasionally surreal blend of education, humor and intellectual challenge, aimed at teaching the player how to think.... The games put the player into the shoes of a young, eager but sometimes hapless DIA analyst... Intelligence videogames are an example of the way in which the government&apos;s training methods are changing. Traditional decision-making exercises have been done through the classroom BOGSAT (Bunch of Guys Sitting Around a Table). But videogame technology offers the possibility of running long-distance exercises with human- and computer-controlled avatars.
  • Paxton Galvanek, a twenty-eight year-old helped rescue two victims from an overturned SUV on the shoulder of a North Carolina interstate. As the first one on the scene, Galvanek safely removed both individuals from the smoking vehicle and properly assessed and treated their wounds, which included bruises, scrapes, head trauma and the loss of two fingers. His medical background? None - other than what he&apos;s learned playing as a medic in the computer game America&apos;s Army.
  • Natural consequences of action.

    28. 32. Researchers have found that the human brain has a natural affinity for narrative construction. Yep, People tend to remember facts more accurately if they encounter them in a story rather than in a list. And they rate legal arguments as more convincing when built into narrative tales rather than on legal precedent.
    29. 33. Stories provide, context, meaning and purpose
    30. 34. Missile Command. Simple storyline: Missiles are falling and you must save your cities. Players can then imagine a nuclear war, aliens launching missiles, a moon base under attack, whatever they like in the context of the simple storyline.
    31. 35. Production – Players are producers, not just consumers, they are “ writers” not just “readers.” Even at its simplest level, players co-design games by the action they take and decision they make . James Paul Gee, University of Wisconsin-Madison
