Investigating the Impact of Video Games on High School Students’ Engagement and Learning about Genetics

January 20, 2010 by David

That’s quite a title. But look! Someone’s doing actual research on video games and their impact on students!

From the abstract:

This quasi-experimental study evaluated a teacher created video game on genetics in terms of its affective and cognitive impact on student users. While statistical results indicated no differences (p greater than 0.05) in student learning as measured by our instrument, there were significant differences (p less than 0.05) found in the participants’ level of engagement while interfacing with the video game.

There’s more if you want to pay for the article from ERIC.
