Understanding Engagement within the Context of a Safety Critical Game

Jennefer Hart, Ioanna Iacovides, Anne Adams, Manuel Oliveira, Maria Margoudi
2017 Proceedings of the Annual Symposium on Computer-Human Interaction in Play - CHI PLAY '17  
One of the most frequent arguments for deploying serious games is that they provide an engaging format for student learning.  ...  However, engagement is often equated with enjoyment, which may not be the most relevant conceptualization in safety-critical settings, such as law enforcement and healthcare.  ...  Special thanks to Lancashire Constabulary and Thames Valley Police who contributed in the co-development of game and evaluation.  ...

Understanding Difficulties and Resulting Confusion in Learning: An Integrative Review

Jason M. Lodge, Gregor Kennedy, Lori Lockyer, Amael Arguel, Mariya Pachman
2018 Frontiers in Education  
We conclude with a theoretical model of the zones of optimal and sub-optimal confusion as a way of conceptualizing the parameters of productive and non-productive difficulties experienced by students while  ...  Difficulties are often an unavoidable but important part of the learning process. This seems particularly so for complex conceptual learning.  ...  Similarly, confusion has been associated with blockages or impasses in the learning process (Kennedy and Lodge, 2016) .  ...

Understanding design-based learning context and the associated emotional experience

Feiran Zhang, Panos Markopoulos, Tilde Bekker, Mpuerto Paule-Ruíz, Martine Schüll
2020 International Journal of Technology and Design Education  
Our analysis highlights the variability in how different DBL activities can be associated with different emotions.  ...  Emotions, in turn, greatly influence students' learning process and engagement.  ...  Driven by the mechanism of design, the learning approach so-called Design-Based Learning applies Design Thinking (Rowe 1987 ) in a problem-based or project-based learning context.  ...

Understanding Learners' Problem-Solving Strategies in Concurrent and Parallel Programming: A Game-Based Approach [article]

Jichen Zhu, Katelyn Alderfer, Brian Smith, Bruce Char, Santiago Ontañón
2020 arXiv   pre-print
the game can be classified in three main types: trial and error, single-thread, and multi-threaded strategies, and (c) that self-efficacy is correlated with the percentage of time students spend in multithreaded  ...  However, the conceptual shift from sequential programming is notoriously difficult to make. Currently, relatively little research exists on how people learn CPP core concepts.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS We would like to thank Bill Mongan for collaborating with this study by giving us access to students in one of his classes.  ...

Understanding learning within a commercial video game: A case study [article]

Allan Fowler
2015 arXiv   pre-print
There has been an increasing interest in the debate on the value and relevance using video games for learning. Some of the interest stems from frustration with current educational methods.  ...  Measures of both these indicators of cognitive processing further suggested that children in the study learned to play the two video games, World of Goo and Bad Piggies.  ...  Video games incorporate both cognitive and physical activity, it is therefore important to understand the; skill learning, perceptual learning, motor learning, conceptual learning, and procedural learning  ...

Computing and the understanding of text [chapter]

Lillian N. Cassel, Robert E. Beck, Daniel Hardt
1995 World Conference on Computers in Education VI  
A paradigm shift is underway in the needs of newcomers to information technology. The computer and its use have invaded the core of how people learn and work, even how people know.  ...  This paper describes a course built on the principle that computing is an integral part of the human experience with text in all its forms, from simple strings of characters to intricately entwined hypermedia  ...  In encouraging experimentation in the laboratory we accomplish two goals: students learn that experimenting is a legitimate way of learning in a computer environment [6] and they learn how to construct  ...

The Game of Reading and Writing: How Video Games Reframe Our Understanding of Literacy

John Alberti
2008 Computers and Composition  
In so doing, the study of video games promises to fundamentally rewrite the conceptual binary of process and product in composition pedagogy.  ...  The video game is an inherently dialogic discursive space that problematizes the institutionalized distinction between "reading" and "writing" • Return to the visual.  ...  Play The inherent instability of the cultural status of video games reveals itself nowhere more clearly than in the verb associated with gaming.  ...
