Design Instruction Like a Game Developer
AUGUST 1, 2011
As a way of improving instruction and creating more effective learning tools, let’s recast classroom and online instructional methods using game-based thinking. For example, we traditionally teach problem-solving, leadership, decision making and other critical higher order thinking skills by providing learners a list all the elements that need to be learned. A trainer careful explains each item and what it means and then the learners are given a case study or role-play.
