Teaching Pre-Service Teachers to Integrate Serious Games in the Primary Education Curriculum

Margarida Romero, Sylvie Barma
2015 International Journal of Serious Games  
Based on this observation, we aim to introduce pre-service teachers to Game Based Learning (GBL) and Serious Games (SG) integration in the primary education curriculum.  ...  Firstly, the use of SG designed for educational purposes from the start; secondly, the game creation as a learning activity through game authoring platforms; thirdly, the use of repurposed entertainment  ...  Serious games are seen as a way to engage students in inquiry-based learning, an important competency in the Canadian educational settings.  ...
