I commented on several blogs and the one thing that really stood out is the challenge level of games and how important it is to have enough difficulty but not to keep players engaged. I shared a short video with others, which was an interview about the importance of having that challenge in games. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PM-Z20MTkcY. I did a lot of research on the topic this week and learned a lot about the elements of serious games.
I found that I could learn from others about how they are or plan to incorporate serious games in their classrooms. I would like to find a way to incorporate serious games in my classroom and as I mentioned to another student, this semester is the perfect semester for me to learn about serious games because I will be going back into the classroom in the fall.
I shared several of the resources that I found in my blog. I was amazed at how many articles, videos, and other resources there were out there about serious games. I cited these resources in my previous blog for others to look at and use. I continue to learn a lot in this course and love to share what I am learning with others.
