Abstract

Abstract: The attributes of targeted versus immersive game formats were discussed with a suggestion that targeted games have a role in education. Student use of nine targeted mathematics games utilizing single- and multi-player game formats were analyzed. The results indicate that students have a strong preference for competitive games over single-player and collaborative games, and sustain play outside of the school day. An additional follow-up survey suggests that students have strong preference for characteristics inherent to targeted games. These include autonomy, feedback, competition, and challenging levels of play.
