Game-based personalized learning in a common way enhances the learning experiences for the learner in a more proficient and timely manner. Game-based learning can simulate real-world application and experiences for learners and facilitators of instruction. The learner can promote and lead educational learning activities to enhance skills and knowledge in a variety of ways. In our schools and universities today, learners are exposed to a lot of technology applications. Using games through the… Expand

TLDR
The empirical results reveal that the pervasive game leads to higher energetic activation, more positive emotions, and more positive attitudes towards learning content, than the conventional case-study approach. Expand
The effect of simulation games on the learning of computational problem solving
TLDR
It was found that students when learning computational problem solving with the game were more likely to perceive a flow learning experience than in traditional lectures and the students' intrinsic motivation was also enhanced when they learned with the simulation game. Expand
