Smith, Glenn Gordon – Journal of Research in Reading, 2012
This study compared books with embedded computer games (via pentop computers with microdot paper and audio feedback) with regular books with maps, in terms of fifth graders' comprehension and retention of spatial details from stories. One group read a story in hard copy with embedded computer games, the other group read it in regular book format…

Chu, Hui-Chun; Chang, Shao-Chen – Educational Technology Research and Development, 2014
Although educational computer games have been recognized as being a promising approach, previous studies have indicated that, without supportive models, students might only show temporary interest during the game-based learning process, and their learning performance is often not as good as expected. Therefore, in this paper, a two-tier test…

Dennis, Alan R.; Bhagwatwar, Akshay; Minas, Randall K. – Journal of Information Systems Education, 2013
The importance of testing, especially certification and high-stakes testing, has increased substantially over the past decade. Building on the "serious gaming" literature and the psychology "priming" literature, we developed a computer game designed to improve test-taking performance using psychological priming. The game primed…

Gürbüz, Hasan; Evlioglu, Bengisu; Erol, Çigdem Selçukcan; Gülseçen, Hulusi; Gülseçen, Sevinç – Education and Information Technologies, 2017
Computer-based games as developments in information technology seem to grow and spread rapidly. Using of these games by children and teenagers have increased. The presence of more beneficial and educational games in contrast to the violent and harmful games is remarkable. Many scientific studies have indicated that the useful (functional) games…

Frydenberg, Mark – International Association for Development of the Information Society, 2015
Teaching students to create computer games has become a common practice in both K-12 and tertiary education to introducing programming concepts, increasing student engagement, and recruiting majors and minors in technology fields. This study describes a project where first-year college students in an introductory technology concepts course use a…

Wahyudin, Didin; Hasegawa, Shinobu; Kamaludin, Apep – Education and Information Technologies, 2017
This paper describes the survey--conducted in Indonesian universities (UNIV) and high schools (HS)--whose concern is to examine preferences and influences of computer game for training. Comparing the students' viewpoint between both educational levels could determine which educational level would satisfy the need of MAGNITUDE--mobile serious game…

Yong, Su-Ting – International Journal of Virtual and Personal Learning Environments, 2017
The purpose of this study was to explore gender differences among digital native students in mathematics learning and gaming. A quantitative dominant mixed methods approach was employed in which quantitative surveys [174 students] and qualitative interviews [eight students, eight parents and six teachers] were administered concurrently. Data…

Aunio, Pirjo; Mononen, Riikka – European Journal of Special Needs Education, 2018
The aim of this study was to determine the effects of an educational computer game, Lola's World, on low-performing children's early numeracy skills. Four preschools with 33 children from families of low socio-economic status (M[subscript age] = 5.5 years) took part in this study. Of the 33 children, 23 were split randomly into two groups: an…

Wright, J. Talmadge – American Journal of Play, 2018
Critiquing and expanding Huizinga's theory of play in "Homo Ludens," the author argues for play as a means to access what is real and introduces a new model of play he calls the containment play expression (CPE) to challenge traditional notions about the opposition between play and work. This model, he contends, bridges this gap between…

Elimelech, Adi; Aram, Dorit – AERA Open, 2019
We constructed a computer game to support preschoolers' early word spelling without an adult's assistance. The study explored the relative influence of auditory and visual digital supports on children's performance. Participants were 96 preschoolers who were randomly assigned into one of three groups: no support, auditory only support, or auditory…

Inchamnan, Wilawan – IAFOR Journal of Education, 2016
This research investigates the extent to which creative processes can be fostered through computer gaming. It focuses on creative components in games that have been specifically designed for educational purposes: Digital Game Based Learning (DGBL). A behavior analysis for measuring the creative potential of computer game activities and learning…

Dsilva, Lorna; Mittal, Shubhi; Koepnick, Brian; Flatten, Jeff; Cooper, Seth; Horowitz, Scott – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2019
The computer game Foldit is currently widely used as a biology and biochemistry teaching aid. Herein, we introduce a new feature of Foldit called "custom contests" that allows educators to create puzzles that fit their curriculum. The effectiveness of the custom contests is demonstrated by the use of five distinct custom contests in an…

Mancilla-Caceres, Juan F.; Espelage, Dorothy; Amir, Eyal – Journal of School Violence, 2015
Even though previous studies have addressed the relation between face-to-face bullying and cyberbullying, none have studied both phenomena simultaneously. In this article, we present a computer game-based method to study both types of peer aggression among youth. Study participants included fifth graders (N = 93) in two U.S. Midwestern middle…

McLaren, Bruce M.; Adams, Deanne M.; Mayer, Richard E.; Forlizzi, Jodi – International Journal of Game-Based Learning, 2017
Excitement about learning from computer-based games has been papable in recent years and has led to the development of many educational games. However, there are relatively few sound empirical studies in the scientific literature that have shown the benefits of learning mathematics from games as opposed to more traditional approaches. The…

Baytak, Ahmet; Land, Susan M. – Educational Technology Research and Development, 2011
This study employed a case study design (Yin, "Case study research, design and methods," 2009) to investigate the processes used by 5th graders to design and develop computer games within the context of their environmental science unit, using the theoretical framework of "constructionism." Ten fifth graders designed computer games using "Scratch"…
