An Educational Theory Based on Game Theory. Preliminary Work.
Chapman, Laura Hill
Game theory may be a fruitful basis for educational theory. After describing games and related concepts like "utility," the author sets up examples of how games may be used as a basis for selecting teaching strategies. For instance, a teacher may decide to change many aspects of his teaching style, rather than just one at a time, if there is a greater probability that the changes will affect his pupil's performance.
