My initial search for graduate programs was my first indication that technology
and pedagogy were not the same thing and that what I needed was not
technology but learning theory. You can learn a given technology and know
nothing about how to use it for learning, but if you know how people learn, you
can teach yourself a technology and be well on your way to designing effective
learning. Applying this lesson to games was another matter, however. I spent
much of my time in ...

Based on the various educational game design approaches, there are two
compulsory components which should not miss- the 'educational' component and
the 'game' component (Roslina & Azizah, 2009). The balance between these two
prerequisites in game design actually influence the effectiveness of educational

Unfortunately, previous studies on the learning styles of the learners have not
provided sufficient guidelines to design effective educational computer games to
meet the needs of individual learners. However, there are two important studies
which are relevant to the focus of this paper: Prensky [1] and Chong et al. [2].

whereas Chong's study focuses on the impact of learning styles using digital
games. However ...

There are two main arguments about digital game-based learning that are not yet
accepted fully in the adult learning community. The first argument is that the
learners have changed deeply and grew up digital. The second one is that
individuals are experienced in the new form of play, computer and video games,
and theses experiences shape their preferences and abilities for their learning (
Prensky, 2001). One of the most importantissues in designing digital game-based
learning is ...

educational games is a nearly impossible challenge. Certainly, the results
coming from static media effects research provide little reason to believe that
educational game designers have mastered that complexity. Nonetheless, we
know that people of varying ...
