British Journal of Educational Technology Vol. 48, No. 3 (May 2017) pp. 860–877
The challenge in serious games is to improve the effectiveness of learning by stimulating relevant cognitive processes. In this paper, we investigate the potential of surprise in two experiments with prevocational students in the domain of...
Computer game-based mathematics education: Embedded faded worked examples facilitate knowledge acquisition
Learning and Instruction Vol. 50, No. 1 (August 2017) pp. 44–53
This study addresses the added value of faded worked examples in a computer game-based learning environment. The faded worked examples were introduced to encourage active selection and processing of domain content in the game. The content of the...
