The GOOD-BYE TO DENGUE GAME: Debriefing Study
Lennon, Jeffrey L.; Coombs, David W.
Simulation & Gaming, v36 n4 p499-517 Dec 2005
This study examined the use of postgame debriefing of a health educational board game activity on dengue fever in a Filipino student population. The debriefing used a series of specific open-ended questions, exploring students' feelings about the game and game-related questionnaires, students' perceptions of important information about dengue from the game, new information learned about dengue, areas of improvement on students' dengue control skills, and suggested areas of improvement for the game. Eighty-one students in Grade 5, Grade 6, and High School Year 1 participated in the in-school debriefing, conducted by seven Filipino student teachers. Eighty out of 81 students indicated "liking" the game. Reasons for liking the game were divided among responses based on their learning about dengue, and also perceived fun. Dengue control and prevention yielded the greatest category response to the question on perceived important material covered by the game. (Contains 8 tables.)
