Hi all, I am Jason Zagami, a researcher in the use of games in education at Griffith University on the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia. I am active in all forms of non-gambling or live-hunting gaming from board games, miniature games, roleplay, freeform (later to become LARP), play-by-mail (precursor to turn based online gaming), and all form of video and now computer games. I particularly enjoy relaxing with complex realtime strategy games and wargames but my professional interest lies in exploring how gameplay can improve learning processes. I develop games for teacher education concepts using various engines and virtual worlds and analyse these using EEG feedback during gamer interaction with in-game activities that involve learning new ways of advancing in the game. Looking forward to participating in this MOOC and seeing how this topic and the gamification processes built in make it interesting.

Wow, Jason! How awesome are you? Wow!

Any preliminary findings from the EEG measurements?

Hi Jason,

Fascinating work and we are very interested to hear your results. A few of the guild officers last year we are able to organize a talk about the work being done at Arizona State University Emotional Impacts of Digial Media they are using EEG headsets to also map when the actual learning is taking place. We keep wondering if this type of research is going to blow away the pedagogies we have been using. So any time you would tell us more about work, please do so!

I am really interested in that EEG interaction, I read somewhere that kids who play a lot of games as developing children/young adults have their brain "wired differently" is that true?
