My name is Monica Swindle, and I currently teach as an adjunct at a community college and state university. I have recently begun researching game-based learning theory, and I am intrigued by what I have found. As someone who grew up playing video games (Super Mario anyone?), I find it interesting how well video game playing lines up with what we know about how the brain learns.

What level of Education are you thinking of using GBL for?
First year college-level composition courses

What types of games are you thinking about using?
Simulation games mostly, and I am trying to develop a way to re-conceptualize the design of my course all together as a game itself.

How much experience do you have in gaming?
A bit.

What are your expectations of GBL's affect on your students / clients?
I would like to use it to increase motivation, including intrinsic motivation, and to leverage some of the ways that games mirror effective learning skills. For instance, in the composition classroom I have a very hard time getting students to revise, but this is something that is done naturally in a game.

Are you looking for collaborators?
Sure!

Looking forward to working with you all!
