DESCRIPTION

David Smith: Praxis - A step forward in learning games http://youtu.be/CppIYs5i948 Praxis is an educational adventure game with RPG elements. The game aims to assist with learning science whilst analysing student actions to create a picture of how well they understand certain concepts. In this presentation David will discuss the processes that we went through in developing the game, how making a game educational differs from making a non-educational game, the common pitfalls (the majority of which we managed to avoid), and how integrating information allows for improvement of the game experience in addition to changed teacher practice.
