A few detailed Google searches later and I find this little page:
Not all the links to the ‘online articles’ further down the page are working but some further searching will find them easily enough. I’ve selected a few I liked for you below (as well as updating my Links/Resources page).
- Marc Prensky: Types of Learning
- Angela McFarlane: Report on the educational use of games
- The relevance of video games and gaming consoles to the Higher and Further Education learning experience
- The Educational Potential of Electronic Games: From Games–To–Teach to Games–To–Learn
Question: Has anyone developed some form ‘game’ that is being used in education? Can you let us see it by replying below?
I’m looking for examples of anything which is effectively ‘not’ text-based but ‘is’ used in education (preferably higher education). I’ve been in contact with Caspian Learning who are expecting to release an educational licence for their ‘Thinking Worlds’ software vey soon; thus enabling non-technical users (non-developers) to generate almost-AI interactive games.
