Escape Game à la bibliothèque : le jeu comme outil d'apprentissage

sup-numerique.gouv.frDans le cadre du Welcome Program, destiné aux étudiants en échange ou en Erasmus lors de la semaine de pré-rentrée à Sciences Po, la bibliothèque a pris le parti de faire découvrir aux étudiants de première année ses lieux et son fonctionnement par le jeu et l'expérience in situ. Cet Escape Game commence par une visite traditionnelle de la bibliothèque puis se transforme tout à coup en un jeu au cours duquel les étudiants vont avoir à résoudre une première énigme qui va les mener à une seconde énigme.

Online Games

Online Games
This is an odd article in that, while it describes and touts the use of games in learning, its understanding of what constitutes a game seems to be restricted almost entirely to the quiz show format, following the model of Jeopardy Millionaire. Sure, these are games, but it seems to me that online trivia is only a small part of the picture. More...

Surgeons Who Play Video Games Err Less

Surgeons Who Play Video Games Err Less
I think there's an interesting observation here: one of the reasons why learning in the form of computer games may be more effective is that our tools are also beginning to resemble computer games. Take this example, where doctors who used video game training made fewer errors in laparoscopic surgery, which uses a tiny camera and instruments controlled by joysticks outside the body. More...

The 300 Games Every Game Developer (and Gamer) Should Know

The 300 Games Every Game Developer (and Gamer) Should Know
OK, it's nowhere near 300 games. And it's just a list; there is no real discussion. But the concept is worth a moment of your time, as it stretches your mind a bit to think of the different categories of games and of the unique properties possessed by each different type of game. Just for fun, also add the author's Talk Like a Gamer to your reading list. More...

Professor Warcraft

Games are better educators than you think, argues the author, and the evidence for this is the deep knowledge gamers have of fictional worlds. "The fact that they generally teach us about fictional worlds or nonacademic issues is secondary to the fact that history, literature, geography, art, and pretty much anything else can be taught effectively in a game environment." The author contrasts current trends in e-learning - "affordable, disposable learning modules so easy and cheap to create that it's better to produce new courses than update old ones" - and suggests that games could adapt to this world. In the gaming community, the equivalent of a learning object is a 'mod' - a player-authored replacement for an original part of the game. More...
