Strategies for Endogenous Design of Educational Games

Sandeep Athavale, Girish Dalvi
2019 Conference of the Digital Games Research Association  
In endogenous design, the gameplay emerges from the content, thus seamlessly integrating the act of playing with learning.  ...  The identification of these design strategies is a significant step towards building a framework for endogenous design of educational games.  ...  In the space of integration methods, we find an inquiry based approach for connecting learning objectives to gameplay (Hall et al. 2014) .  ...

Foundations of Game-Based Learning

Jan L. Plass, Bruce D. Homer, Charles K. Kinzer
2015 Educational Psychologist  
We conclude that a combination of cognitive, motivational, affective, and sociocultural perspectives is necessary for both game design and game research to fully capture what games have to offer for learning  ...  We then review design elements of games that facilitate learning by fostering learners' cognitive, behavioral, affective, and sociocultural engagement with the subject matter.  ...  These decisions were influenced by the authors' theoretical approach to the use of digital games for learning.  ...

Design Principles and Ethical Issues of Gaming Instructional Materials: Unifying the Views of Educational Technology and Simulation and Gaming

Toshiki Matsuda
2012 STUDIES IN SIMULATION AND GAMING  
In order to achieve this goal, I think that the integration of the model of the target world and the model of the learning process is necessary.  ...  I also think that individualized learning is important, since the results of group learning may be greatly dependent on the combinatory qualifications and abilities of group members.  ...  Moreover, because gaming is a tool for data collection, an important aspect of game design involves the ability to log game play for debriefing.  ...
