Game Mechanics and Games in Education
Games have been part of education for a long time. But games, and using game mechanics are different. One can use game mechanics without playing a “game”, per se. When most people think of games they think of a board game (e.g., monopoly), a card game (e.g., gin rummy), or some type of outdoor game (e.g., tag, king of the hill). Although there are certainly uses of games in education, its likely most applicable at the grade school level.
The mechanics that make games work, however, are something that can be used at any level of education and in any discipline. This container post has been set up to list information that deals with both game mechanics and games in education.
