Perceptions of the Value of Digital Mini-Games: Implications for Middle School Classrooms
Ray, Beverly; Coulter, Gail A.
Journal of Digital Learning in Teacher Education, v26 n3 p92-100 Spr 2010
This research examined the change in the perceptions of preservice teachers regarding the use of digital minigames to support middle school level social studies learning. The results of a Wilcoxon Signed Ranks Test for matched pairs revealed that participants' (N = 18) perceptions were positively modified by participation in a series of digital mini-games [T = 5.5, p less than 0.01 (two tailed)]. Results also indicated that the majority of preservice teachers agreed that digital games do have the potential for promoting learning in an educational setting. Recommendations for further research are provided.
