DIGITAL GAMES IN THE GOVERNMENT CLASSROOM
BY BRIAN TURNER
Trick them into learning by making learning fun and engaging.
WHY USE GAMES
 Most children enjoy playing games. Such play can be related to several different forms of learning.
 McFarlane, Angela. (2014). Authentic Learning for the Digital Generation. Routledge. Retrieved 17 March
2017, from <http://www.myilibrary.com.ezproxy1.lib.asu.edu?ID=637101>
 There is arousal and reward in games, which theoretical work suggests will strongly promote transfer of
ideas learned in the game that are related to the curriculum
 Blumberg, Fran C. PhD. (2014). Learning by Playing. Oxford University Press, USA. Retrieved 17 March
2017, from <http://www.myilibrary.com.ezproxy1.lib.asu.edu?ID=576476>
 Games can promote interest from students in areas that have suffered various amounts of budget
cutbacks. Games are an affordable way to present materials, instead of new textbooks and other
materials.
 Glasgow, D. (2015). Political Theory Simulations in the Classroom: Simulating John Locke’s Second
Treatise of Government. <i>PS: Political Science &amp; Politics,</i> <i>48</i>(2), 368-372.
