1 Three Genres of Game Research Richard E. Mayer University of California, Santa Barbara 2014 CRESST Conference WARP SPEED, MR. SULU: Integrating Games, Technology, and Assessment to Accelerate Learning in the 21 st Century April 30, 2014
2 Games for Learning: An Evidence-Based Approach 1. Introduction 1. Value-Added Approach: Which Features Increase the Instructional Effectiveness of a Computer Game? 2. Cognitive Consequences Approach: What Is Learned from an Off-the-Shelf Game? 3. Media Comparison Approach: Do People Learn Better with Games than with Conventional Media? 4. Conclusion
3 Rationale for Studying Games for Learning Educational computer games have promise for improving learning, but we are just beginning to test that potential in scientific research.
4 Potential and Pitfalls of Educational Computer Games Potential Game features promote motivation (increasing generative processing). Instructional features promote learning (increasing essential processing). Pitfalls Game features diminish learning (increasing extraneous processing). Instructional features diminish motivation (decreasing generative processing).
5 Cognitive Theory of Multimedia Learning
6 Three Kinds of Cognitive Processes During Learning Process Definition Effects of games Extraneous Cognitive processing during + Game features learning that does not serve - Instructional features the instructional objective. Essential Cognitive processing during - Game features learning required to mentally + Instructional features represent the presented material (e.g., selecting). Generative Cognitive processing during + Game features learning required to make - Instructional features sense of the presented material (e.g., selecting, organizing, integrating).
7 Players in Game Research Who What they do How they view games Visionaries Inspire Positive Developers Dazzle Positive Educators Connect Positive Investigators Inform Critical
8 Strong Claims for Games Kids learn more positive, useful things for their future from their video games than they learn in school. Good games are problem-solving spaces that create deep learning, learning that is better than what we often see today in our schools. The key to solving the current crisis in education will be to use the power of computer and video games to give all children access to experiences and build interest and understanding. Good games lend themselves to systematic understandings. Prensky (2006, p. 4); Gee (2007, p. 10); Shaffer (2006, p. 67); Squire (2011, p. 36)
9 Weak Evidence for Games Many strong claims are made for the educational value of computer games, but there is little strong empirical evidence to back up those claims. there is relatively little research evidence on the effectiveness of simulations and games for learning there is considerably more enthusiasm for describing the affordances of games and their motivating properties than for conducting research to demonstrate that those affordances are used to attain instructional aims This would be a good time to shelve the rhetoric about games and divert those energies to conducting needed research.
10 While effectiveness of game environments can be documented in terms of intensity and longevity of engagement as well as the commercial success of the games, there is much less solid empirical information about what outcomes are systematically achieved by the use of individual and multiplayer games to train participants in acquiring knowledge and skills. Further, there is almost no guidance for game designers and developers on how to design games that facilitate learning. Mayer (2011, p. 281); Honey & Hilton (2011, p. 21) Tobias et al., 2011 (p. 206); O Neil & Perez (2008,p. ix)
11 Problem: Strong claims based on weak evidence. Solution: Develop game research methodologies. Produce high-quality evidence base on games for learning. Ground game research in cognitive theory. Foster collaboration among visionaries, developers, educators, and investigators.
12 What are games for learning? Games for learning are games intended to promote learning (i.e., intended to improve performance on target tasks). Play game Improve on measures of learning outcome
13 What are the characteristics of educational games? Characteristic Description Rule-based Responsive Challenging Events occur based on a set of knowable rules. Environment allows for player to act and responds promptly and saliently. Environment provides opportunities for success on difficult tasks. Cumulative Current state of the environment reflects player s previous actions and allows for assessment of progress towards goals.
14 Three Genres of Game Research Research Genre Research Question Research Design Value added Which features of a game Base version vs. promote learning? enhanced version Cognitive consequences What do people learn from Game vs. no game playing an off-the-shelf (or varying amounts game? of game playing) Media comparison Do people learn better Game vs. from a game or standard medium conventional media?

58 Games for Learning: Summary of Main Points Many strong claims are made for the educational value of games, but it is useful to take an evidence-based approach that is grounded in cognitive theory. Research on educational games is in its early stage. Three genres of game research are value added, cognitive consequences, and media comparison.

62 Take Home Message When the goal is to help people learn with games, the design of educational games should be informed by scientific research evidence and grounded in cognitive theory. Educational researchers can contribute to a science of games for learning, which helps create effective educational games.
