What kinds of games are out there?
• Interactive, immersive
• Success requires complex system learning, higher thinking
skills
• Competitive: studies show that the built-in competitive aspect
of digital gaming has measurable benefits for student
performance
• Instant feedback, opportunity to modify answers, which leads
to student ownership of learning
Keys to Success
• Progressive learning requires player to master topic before
moving forward
• Emphasis on persistence and effort
• Gameplay encourages deeper learning
• Content encourages integration of knowledge bases and skill
sets

Types of Games
• As a break or reward
• In centers
• For skills practice
• During independent study time
• As homework
• After school
Use Casual and Reinforcement
Games
– Have students identify similarities and differences between the Maya Number System
and our Hindu-Arabic Number System
– Have students create their own Maya Number System math problems for their
classmates to solve
– Have students create a 3 Digits type game using a different number system (e.g.
Roman Numerals)
– Have students research other number systems to identify similarities and differences
between them
– Use loot archive as basis for further student work on Maya history
Game Integration Ideas
– Large-scale, immersive experiences that teach new content
– Designed to be part of the curriculum rather than
supplementing it
– Have complex story lines divided into multiple levels, built-in
assessments and seamless motivators such as achievements
and level-ending puzzles.
– Can be used as a stand-alone lesson without extra scaffolding
or as part of a larger unit with minimal scaffolding
Long-Form Games
• Unit study
• Extended project time
• Teacher-led lessons
• Group work
• Knowledge gain
• Tailored learning
Use Long Form Games
• Expand on value of in-game assessments and achievements
through additional external motivations (e.g. challenge to complete
puzzle in fastest time; extra credit for completing X achievement)
• Expand learning by using game as research tool: assign specific
puzzles or part of game and have students explain to others what
they learned
• Have students write report on in-game topics (e.g. Maya
government, Maya Calendar)
• Make connection to current events (e.g. Maya environmental
interaction and drought in CA)
