Playing Modeling Games in the Science Classroom: The Case for Disciplinary Integration
Sengupta, Pratim; Clark, Doug
Educational Technology, v56 n3 p16-22 May-Jun 2016
The authors extend the theory of "disciplinary integration" of games for science education beyond the virtual world of games, and identify two key themes of a practice-based theoretical commitment to science learning: (1) materiality in the classroom, and (2) iterative design of multiple, complementary, symbolic inscriptions (e.g., graphs and agent-based programs). They also identify the affordances of their proposed approach for facilitating student learning and teacher agency.
