Stealth Learning: Unexpected Learning Opportunities through Games
Sharp, Laura A.
Journal of Instructional Research, v1 p42-48 2012
Educators across the country struggle to create engaging, motivating learning environments for their Net Gen students. These learners expect instant gratification that traditional lectures do not provide. This leaves educators searching for innovative ways to engage students in order to encourage learning. One solution is for educators to use stealth learning in their classrooms to create engagement and motivation in students that would increase learning opportunities. This article will cover stealth learning topics including unexpected learning opportunities, benefits, academic performance, and use of games in the classroom, engagement, and motivation that educators can use in the K-12 setting.
