Research in Games and Learning

The 2004 report Literature Review in Games and Learning, Kirriemuir and McFarlane point to a suite of valuable skills developed through game play that include:

  • Strategic Thinking
  • Planning
  • Communication
  • Application of numbers
  • Negotiating skills
  • Group decision making
  • Data handling

This may lead one to the conclusion that all games are educational […] [Note: Author generally agrees this statement but says that it is very hard to convince educators] By using game, students will improve also their skills in analysis, systems understanding, problem solving, and scientific methodology, and that these skills are lasting and important.
