Educational Gaming: ITEC 2011 Educational Gaming: ITEC 2011 Presentation Transcript

  • Educational Gaming
    Sneaking in Learning Through Fun!
  • Why should the United States focus on digital games for learning?Federation of American Scientists: Summit on Educational Games (2005)
    • Many video games require players to master skills in demand by today’s employers—strategic and analytical thinking, problem solving, planning and execution, decision-making, and adaptation to rapid change.
    • They can be used to practice practical skills and important skills that are rarely used, to train for high-performance situations in a low-consequence-for-failure environment, and for team building.
    • Games offer attributes important for learning—clear goals, lessons that can be practiced repeatedly until mastered, monitoring learner progress and adjusting instruction to learner level of mastery, closing the gap between what is learned and its use, motivation that encourages time on task, personalization of learning, and infinite patience.
    • Today’s students—the so-called digital natives—are poised to take advantage of Educational games.
