Using Online Games and Environments: Geoscience Resources
On-line games and environments take geoscience education in new directions. On one hand they have the capacity to totally immerse learners in virtual exploration and interaction. On the other, they are closely related to models and simulations -- tools we use routinely in our research to explore data and hypotheses. This virtual workshop will explore the current use of on-line games and simulations in undergraduate geoscience education, and explore their potential for the future.
There is now a collection of relevant references, examples of online games, and ideas for teaching with online games suggested by participants in the 2008 workshop.
See presentations, resources, and outcomes from the 2008 online workshop.
