For this week’s symposium Salvador and I will be presenting on the work we’ve been doing for the Digital Games for Learning and Training (DiGLT) project. Salvador will be outlining the results from the systematic literature review on motion-based games and learning, and I will talk briefly about the Kinectimals study I conducted in August/September. Some of the topics we’re hoping to discuss with the group are:
- Definitions of motion-based gaming and the categorization/labelling of new technologies
- Potential of digital game-based learning and the challenge of designing games for serious purposes
- User research and the evaluation of learning through games
- Challenges and opportunities of motion-based gaming
As usual, we’ll meet in the 11th floor lab from 5-7pm. Hope to see you all there.
