Exploring the Game Transfer Model: Improving Games for Learning
As my graduation project I have studied the Game Transfer Model. My main focus of the study was to figure out hoe the model worked and how it would look like in practice.
Often when a player learns something through a game he is only able to apply it in the game. To be able to use the learned skill or knowledge outside of it the player has to transfer it out of the game context and into a real life context. The Game Transfer Model is model which facilitates and promotes this process. Things which can get transferred can be as simple as understanding how some economic process work and can be applied, to a new way of looking at the world.
