What Makes Game-Based Learning So Effective--& How Does It Work?

When we think of games, we often think of them as somewhat trivial or just for fun, but can a game-based learning environment really change the way students learn and teachers teach? Researchers agree that people learn best in a game environment, more than any other traditional form of instruction, but why? People love games. We like to have fun and we especially like to win. While it may go without saying, this tendency holds true in a learning environment as well. Winning doesn’t necessarily imply there is a loser. Some of the best game-based instructional tools provide students with a judgement-free learning environment, helping them achieve many small wins over time that lead to higher motivation and less stress. This concept also counters the pass/fail model of testing and evaluations by allowing students to focus more on learning the material and improving so that they can move on to the next level.
