Long Description:
Want your students to focus and pay attention to detail? Ramp up the pressure! Want your student to see connections? Loosen up time constraints and inject some humor. Want them to remember facts? Repeatedly force them to recall the facts at random intervals. Educational Psychology gives us effective tools for achieving certain pedagogical goals. This talk covers how to use findings in this field to design educational games that can effectively accomplish their pedagogical goals. We will also look at how these design principles were used in several games designed by Dr. Heidenreich for his Math classes.
