Foster, Aroutis; Shah, Mamta – Journal of Digital Learning in Teacher Education, 2020
In this analytical paper, we argue for the centrality of teachers in game-based learning (GBL) interventions. We examine the following research question, "What principles emerge from teacher education in game-based learning research conducted from 2007-2018?". In doing so, we examine evidence generated over 10+ years deductively and…
