Conceptual Change Takes Time: Game Based Learning Cannot be Only Supplementary Amusement (Ketamo & Kiili, 2010)
Ketamo, H. & Kiili, K. (2010). Conceptual Change Takes Time: Game Based Learning Cannot be Only Supplementary Amusement. Journal of Educational Multimedia and Hypermedia, 19(4), 399-419. Learning games, if designed well, may serve as effective learning tools supporting knowledge construction (e.g. Kiili, 2007; Lainema & Makkonen, 2003; Gee, 2003; Amory, 2001; Prensky, 2001).

Cen, H., Koedinger, K., Junker, B. Learning Factors Analysis – A General Method for Cognitive Model Evaluation and Improvement. the 8th International Conference on Intelligent Tutoring Systems. 2006. Pages 12.(download) In this paper, the authors describe a semi-automated method for improving a cognitive model called Learning Factors Analysis that combines a statistical model, human expertise and a combinatorial search.
Games for Learning Institute Co-Director Jan Plass and Co-PI Bruce Homer presented a TechTalk on the research and design of learning games at Google recently. I recommend starting about 24 minutes in! [my notes are below] Four main functions of learning games – prepare for future learning – for specific learning goals (content & skills) … Read more
