Developing Educational Games for Use in Speech Communication, Language Arts, and Theatre Courses.
Parks, Arlie Muller
The game design procedure outlined in this article assures the designer of an educational game which will help students to learn the material stated in the game's objectives and will provide the teacher with a means of testing the student's ability to meet those objectives. Steps involved in the design are: determining the behavioral objective or objectives of the game, developing a pretest and posttest, making a rough outline of the game content, selecting game format ideas, writing instructions for playing the game, testing the game in an informal situation, and constructing the final form of the game. A great variety of game types may be designed using this technique, and games may be designed for behavioral objectives which have many broad purposes relating to teaching communication, theatre, and the language arts.
