A Proposal for Accelerating the Implementation and Development of Video Games in Education
Jones, Greg; Kalinowski, Kevin
Innovate: Journal of Online Education, v2 n6 Aug-Sep 2006
The integration of video games in the classroom continues to be a topic for educators and researchers alike. Yet despite the dialogue, widespread integration of this technology has yet to occur. To help remedy this situation, Greg Jones and Kevin Kalinowski propose the establishment of an online, open community designated to explore and develop learning objects related to video game technologies. They argue that an open dialogue among all of the stakeholders--researchers, developers, and educators--would better encourage the research of, endorsement for, and use of game technology in the classroom. According to Jones and Kalinowski, the proposed model has the potential to support timely development of curricular materials, help educators align their use of games with state educational standards, establish greater collaboration between educators and game designers, and foster research for further development and integration of video games in academic settings.
