Frustrated by your students’ lack of basic skills? Wish you could get students to contribute their analyses and new ideas, instead of just rehashing what they can recall? In order for students to progress from exposure through proficiency, and on to analysis and application, certain basic skills must become fluent in every discipline. Using games to build that fluency is a natural solution. Computer-delivered games can provide excitement to learning instead of dull, repetitive tasks. When students learn through gaming, assessment is built into the process.
