Game Based Learning in Civics
Level One: Use iCivics to Teach the Content
Level Two: Pair the Right Game with the Learning Objective
Level Three: Design a Game Yourself
Miller confronts the myth that there are no defined learning outcomes in Game Based Learning:
“…every game has a specific objective designed for the gameplay. Whether it’s collecting a certain item in a quest, defeating an enemy, or learning an important piece of information, games demand learning in order to succeed. In this case, the civics content needs to be at the forefront. The Center for Civics Education has specific standards that all teachers can use across all grade levels.”
