Presentation Location: Orange County Ballroom 3, Lobby Level
Presentation Format: Forum Session
Presentation Description: Participants will explore how games and “game strategies” serve as optimal 21st century tools for motivating student learning, increasing student engagement, and improving student retention.
Presentation Plan:
Games have long proven remarkably successful in engaging players from early years to adulthood in extended learning environments for long durations far exceeding a typical college semester. Over the last decade educational researchers like James Paul Gee, Arizona State, and Kurt Squire, University of Wisconsin, have convincingly demonstrated how the design of commercial games can be transferred and adapted to educational learning environments that motivate otherwise reluctant students to persist in a course and achieve success. This session will briefly explain the psychological theory behind game motivation and demonstrate how that theory is being applied in projects sponsored by Excelsior’s new Center for Game and Simulation-Based Learning.
