Collaborative Design in Extension: Using a Modified Game Jam to Explore Game-Based Learning
Educational games can be an innovative way for Extension educators to teach content to any given audience. While many in Extension have an interest and passion for using and designing games, the process may seem intimidating to Extension professionals, especially those without experience in game design. This eFieldbook offers an alternative to full game design, in which game developers, content experts, and Extension educators collaborate to design a game prototype. This modified
game jam process is budget-friendly and can be completed in a few weeks.
