Game-based learning and simulation is a powerful mode of learning, used by industries as diverse as aviation and health sciences. While there are many generic Virtual Learning Environments available to further education and higher education in the United Kingdom, there is no widely available open-source Web-based simulation environment for professional learning. The SIMPLE (SIMulated Professional Learning Environment) project has designed, created, implemented and is in the process of…

Serious Games, Simulations, and Case-Based Reasoning
TLDR
When utilized to support distance education courses, gaming formats can be designed to incorporate specific, or all, knowledge levels and offer opportunities to enhance higher level learning processes, such as strategic knowledge.
Employing a Critical Lens on Instructor Perceptions of Learning Games: Introduction to a Method
TLDR
Critical CineEthnography stems from a discursive, systems-oriented view of learning that explores of the arguments and truth claims made by learners and teachers and employs video capture of out-of-game discussion, artifacts, and body language to build a complex picture of participant experiences.
Exploring Cognitive Load in Immersive Educational Games: The SAVE Science Project
TLDR
This article provides an overview of the design approaches aimed at helping students manage the high levels of cognitive load they report experiencing in virtual environments, and hypothesize that learners will be better able to attend to the processes associated with the assessments, leading to more accurate evidentiary data.
Investigating Games and Simulations in Educational Research and Theory: Enhancing Academic Communication and Scholarship with a Common Language
TLDR
The historical evolution of the definitions of the terms in the fields of philosophy and education is explored and a means by which they may be constructed and dynamically updated is suggested.
From Chaos Towards Sense: A Learner-Centric Narrative Virtual Learning Space
TLDR
This chapter demonstrates a learner-centric narrative virtual learning space, where the unrestricted exploration is combined with mechanisms to monitor the student and provide indirect guidance through elements in the learning space.
Information Trails: In-Process Assessment of Game-Based Learning
TLDR
This chapter describes an “all-rounded” assessment system for game-based learning, which take into consideration the needs of multiple consumers (of information), namely, the Administrators, the Trainers or Educators, and the Learners.
Simulated apprenticeship for pre-service Filipino teachers
The delivery of teacher education courses often for the most part deal with the visible parts of knowledge, the "know-what", which is often disconnected from the tacit knowledge, the "know-how",
Learning as Becoming: Values, Identity, and Performance in the Enaction of Citizenship Education through Game Play
In this chapter, we share a model of game-based learning for use in the context of classroom learning in school. The model is based on the dialectic interaction between game play and dialogic
Utilizing a Simulation within an Online School Technology Leadership Course.
TLDR
Results show that students found the simulation to provide a mostly authentic experience and grew to understand that they should view the simulation as a system, but some students were averse to risk taking and were not always able to adjust to details within the simulation that challenged their existing schema regarding technology leadership and how innovations are diffused within a school setting.
THE IMPORTANCE OF ANIMATIONS AND SIMULATIONS IN THE PROCESS OF (E-)LEARNING
  • Education
  • 2014
This paper discusses about animations and simulations and their irreplaceable use in both, traditional and distance education. The main definitions and a clear distinction of these two terms are

TLDR
The objective is to point out how the implementation of innovative learning environments, based on advanced technology, is the result of the strict interrelation between educational and cognitive theories, technological opportunities and teaching and learning needs.
Game design and learning: a conjectural analysis of how massively multiple online role-playing games (MMORPGs) foster intrinsic motivation
TLDR
An analysis of how the structure in massively multiple online role-playing games might inform the design of interactive learning and game-based learning environments by looking at the elements which support intrinsic motivation.

E-simulations in the wild: interdisciplinary research, design and implementation
TLDR
Though video games are everywhere, they are absent from the classroom and computer-based simulations, a form of computer games, have begun to appear, but they are not as wide-spread as email, discussion threads, and blogs.
