Summary

Instructional gaming, as distinguished from simulation, is defined as any overt instructional or learning format that involves competition and is rule-guided. The literature review identifies five categories of articles on instructional gaming: (1) research, (2) theory, (3) reviews, (4) discussion, and (5) development. Games have been found to serve many functions, such as tutoring, amusing, helping to explore new skills, promoting self-esteem, practicing skills, or seeking to change attitudes. Some assertions drawn from the literature that might be useful in using or designing a game or in researching its use or design are presented. A chart presents an annotated bibliography of 94 articles related to gaming. (SLD)
