Educational environmental geoscience e-gaming to provide stimulating and effective learning




Current Higher Education students mostly comprise so-called Generation Y who have grown up with personal computer and e-gaming technologies. As such, they may respond positively to educational gaming as stimulating and effective complementary learning tools. This paper reports on evaluation of an environmental geoscience e-game developed with other complementary learning technologies for a final year option module for GEES-subject undergraduate students. The e-game was based on an author-published academic article. Semi-quantitative and qualitative evaluation evidences this was an effective approach and complemented more traditional educational learning methods, with a high level of student engagement, including, unexpectedly, with the academic article.
