About this item

Through 27 chapters, researchers working in technology, education, and other areas in the US, Canada, Europe, and Australia examine trends in game-based education in preschool through 12th grade classrooms. They discuss theoretical aspects, such as motivation to learn, inquiry-based STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) learning, embodied learning principles, the concept of reality guides in game design frameworks, the use of templates in the design of an immersive virtual learning environment, kinesthetic gaming and cognition, and training teachers to become augmented reality game designers, followed by pedagogical concepts, including information literacy in virtual environments, disciplinarily-integrated games, the role of serious games, the design of a virtual science fiction scenario, the importance of digital objects to scaffold learning, a comprehensive educational program that integrates virtual immersive learning environments into traditional educational settings, and pre-service teachers' attitudes towards game-based learning. Other sections address cases related to human anatomy, students with disabilities, foreign language, creating digital game-based activities, free-form and structured digital games, distance learning, and science, and gaming innovations like the use of smart toys, Minecraft, a learning analytic system, the design of crowd simulations, the Leap Motion Controller, and soft skills training using games.
