Hitting Restart: Learning and Gaming in an Australian Classroom
Altura, Gerard J.; Curwood, Jen Scott
Journal of Adolescent & Adult Literacy, v59 n1 p25-27 Jul-Aug 2015
Research suggests that video games can foster deep engagement, critical thinking, and collaborative learning. To highlight how video games promote student achievement, we focus on a year 9 elective class in Australia. Our findings suggest that this games-based class encouraged student learning and motivated students to develop advanced literacy skills, including critical analysis, creative writing, and programming.
