Game based learning

How?

Game based learning is a pedagogical approach where students explore aspects of games within learning contexts provided by their teacher. High quality game based learning requires collaboration between student and teacher as they help co-construct various aspects of the learning experience.

When used well, effective game based learning draws the ‘players’ into rich environments that fosters strong engagement and higher order thinking. Students work towards goals, choose their actions, then experience the consequences of those actions as they progress!
