Best practices for implementation

Best Practices for implementation

  • Choose Wisely

  • Think small

  • Find the game in the content

  • Break the mold for where educational games are played.

  • Harness the great “soft skill” learning from games but connect it with content.

  • Don’t ignore, nor be too limited by, teacher training and readiness.

  • Play everywhere and anywhere.

  • Reduce, refuse, and recycle

  • Define the learning goals.

  • Forge partnerships-between academia, commercial companies, non-profits, foundations and government.

  • Don’t ignore or be too constrained by academic/state standards

  • Not just who but what, where, when, and why
