Emotional Educational Gaming- Module 3 (Post 1)

The Indigenous believe of experience and emotion being keys cogs in the acquisition of wisdom/knowledge is possible when the necessary experiences are available to the educator, as was seen on the Fraser River journey. However, in classrooms or other more traditional learning environments, “gamification” makes simulating experiential learning a possibility. This webpage created through UBC provides in-depth information on gamification for emotional development, and also links to “The Things We Carry” which represents a step in game design that has the potential to give students immersive, accessible and place-based lessons in emotional intelligence.
