I submitted my paper today about educational game design variables and found the paper kind of difficult because of the small amounts of research on educational game design. There is a multitude of research on games and learning but little focuses on the content and appearance of educational games.
Having just been introduced to the concept of gamification this past February its great to have the opportunity to develop my own game, although I am finding this quite challenging as well. Games have so much to offer as far as learning. The design of “good” games gives the brain exactly what it craves, increasing attention and the want for more action.
Embedded here is my paper about educational game design variables. Through writing this paper I met AECT Standard 3.1 Media Utilization in determining aspects and benefits of well designed educational games.
