Problem-based educational games are able to provide a fun and motivating environment for teaching and learning of certain subjects. However, most educational game models do not address the learning elements of problem-based educational games. This study aims to synthesize and to propose the important elements to facilitate the learning process and problem solving skill in game-based learning from selected education game models and a problem-based learning model. The results showed two critical components were 1) pedagogy and 2) design embedded in game-based learning and three significant characteristics of a problem-based educational game were 1) authentic problems, 2) student-centered activity, and 3) a facilitator. This paper focuses on proposing and discussing components that leverage the pedagogical aspects in designing a problem-based educational game environment. Moreover, other developers can use this pattern to facilitate to be student-centered learning environment. [For the full proceedings see ED562107.]
