Chartier, Myron R.
Simulation games have taken their place in many speech-communication curriculums. This article summarizes the research findings related to simulation games as learning devices according to the general impact of games, the differential impact of games, learning effects related to game variables, and learning effects related to combining simulation games with other learning methodologies. The final section provides seventeen practical suggestions for facilitating simulation games that game users among speech communication teachers may find helpful. (Author)
