Call For Papers
Special Session Serious Games on Computer Science Learning - SGoCSL 2012
16 - 18 April, 2012 - Porto, Portugal
In conjunction with the 4th International Conference on Computer Supported Education - CSEDU 2012
Martinha Piteira, ESTS/IPS, Portugal
The Special Session in Serious Games on Computer Science Learning (SGoCSL) aims to bring researchers and practitioners working in innovative approaches using games in the learning process.
Serious Games are attracting a growing interest among the main actors that take part in the learning-teaching process.
Serious games are highly considered among other learning tools. Some authors indicate that these systems may play an important role in the learning process, by the ability of overcoming difficulties of some topics and by motivating students to subjects that are considered less interesting, but that are undeniable important.
The integration of the game in the learning process has a specific goal as a target: the achievement of a particular learning objective. This specific goal can be, for instance, a computer programming objective. However, there are many issues related with the use of these tools in education such as usability, collaboration, design, feedback, and several pedagogical and technological aspects, among others.
Authors are welcome to submit papers, discuss theory or research issues, demonstrate tools: Serious Games, Tools for Computer Programming Learning, Karel’s based application and others approaches considered relevant to this area.
SGoCSL encourages authors to submit papers describing original work based on diverse perspectives related to Serious Games use in Computer Science Learning.
