The Value of Serious Games
Serious games are interactive learning tools which have a persuasive or educational purpose. In a simulation, we are immersed in the processes we wish to master and immediately experience the consequences of our actions. In a multi-player game, our acquired skills are tested against human opponents. We are more likely to remember an experience when we are engaged and having fun.

  • Join us for potluck of resources and experiences with serious games and learning simulations.
  • Discuss the value of serious games. Do they have value? If so, how can we utilize them more fully?
