Crystal Island & learning exp
question: how and why are online traces of learning more accurate?
what is serious game? what does it do?
situate context/content in a possible environment/phenomenon/action
interaction with the virtual environment
Are serious games effective in fostering learning and scientific reasoning: What does the evidence show?
what fostering learning means?
better learning outcomes?
be able to scientifically reasoning something
evidence that shows fostering learning?
complexity: lab studies vs learning process
How complex do laboratory studies have to be in order to understand complex learning processes?
experiment control vs. ecological validity
What are the major issues when researchers balance between experimental control vs. ecological validity when studying learning?
Why (or why not?) do researchers need to collect multimodal trace data (e.g., log files, eye tracking, electro-dermal activity) to understand learning?
the only observable of the cognitive process?
frustration with tech & intrusiveness
