Games Based Learning

What can we learn from games? Games profiles - assessment for learning in action!

Do we always have to intervene? Can we leave children to get on with it? Is peer assessment a more natural way to go with games based learning?

Promoting learner engagement:
  • Involvement in reflection, setting goals;
  • personal learning planning;
  • ongoing active engagement;
  • assessment is embedded in the game;
  • nurtures confidence;
  • encourages mastery learning;
  • automatic and dynamic profiling;
  • celebrating success
Games celebrate achievement - give awards and unlock new levels. How could this type of feedback be built into education.
