Slippery Rocks and ALGAE: A Collaborative Multiplayer Educational Roleplaying Game and a Model for Adaptive Learning Game Design

Audience
All Audiences
Session Description
Designing educational games seems deceptively simple, but creating a game that is engaging and offers strengths that compel the players to continue playing can be challenging. Join us as we examine the behavior and design of a multiplayer educational roleplaying game called Slippery Rock Falls that promotes learner collaboration, and share your game design experiences and your insights on the ALGAE model for adaptive learning game design during this interactive session.

Interactivity
The interactive session includes a trivia game that stimulates the audience to share their experiences, an exercise for discussing the kinds of games that they have played and designed, and a collaborative activity that organizes the recommendations of the participants.

If there is interest, we can schedule a Slippery Rock Falls game session after the conference.

    Is the PowerPoint file available for this session? There were so many resources listed in those last few slides, it would be good to have a copy with accessible links.
