Description & Coverage
Description:

Gaming applications are rapidly expanding into the realm of education. Game-based education creates an active and enjoyable learning environment, especially for children and young adults who regularly use gaming for recreational purposes. Due to the evolving nature of education, gaming provides a transformative learning experience for diverse students.

The Handbook of Research on Gaming Trends in P-12 Education provides current research intended to aid educators, school administrators, and game developers in teaching today’s youth in a technology-immersive society. This publication melds together gaming for entertainment purposes as well as gaming applied within educational settings with an emphasis on P-12 classrooms. Featuring exhaustive coverage on topics relating to virtual reality, game design, immersive learning, distance learning through 3D environments as well as best practices for gaming implementation in real-world settings, this handbook of research is an essential addition to the reference collection of international academic libraries.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Designing Digital Objects
  • Distance Learning
  • Game Design Frameworks
  • Game-Based Learning in Physics Classrooms
  • Games and Learning Principles
  • Kinesthetic Gaming, Cognition, and Learning
  • Smart Toys
Reviews and Testimonials

Through 27 chapters, researchers working in technology, education, and other areas in the US, Canada, Europe, and Australia examine trends in game-based education in preschool through 12th grade classrooms. They discuss theoretical aspects, such as motivation to learn, inquiry-based STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) learning, embodied learning principles, the concept of reality guides in game design frameworks, the use of templates in the design of an immersive virtual learning environment, kinesthetic gaming and cognition, and training teachers to become augmented reality game designers, followed by pedagogical concepts, including information literacy in virtual environments, disciplinarily-integrated games, the role of serious games
