Welcome to Week 7 where the topic for the week will be Game-based Learning! We hope that you will enjoy going through our OER this week and that there will be an opportunity for you to learn at least one or two new things regarding the use of games in education. Of course, we would like to encourage you all to participate in the activities that we have included in the OER not just because we need to track participation (please include your name in posts that we are in fact able to do that) but more importantly to give us all a chance to learn from one another. You might notice that we decided not to focus on game-based learning in a broad sense throughout the entire OER but rather we chose to narrow in on a rather new type of gameplay that has entered the market that we wanted to present to you which is VR/AR/MR games.
Taking a step back, we will begin by looking at some of the theory related to game-based learning and to start us off, we invite you to answer or muse the following question and to provide your answer by following the link below.
Question: What do you think makes for a good learning experience?
Once you enter our website, all the participants’ responses will be visible and we will take things from there.
We thus present to you Game-based learning 2.0 (use the link below):
