Serious Learning with Exergames
Are there good arguments for a new, body- and movement-centered approach in designing and developing Serious Games? Will information be remembered better if instruction employs motion-based games?
These and other questions related to Serious Exergaming will be investigated next week during the two-day conference "Sportlich spielend lernen: Lehren und Lernen mit Exergames?". The organizers (full disclosure: I am one of them) have assembled quite an impressive list of keynote speakers and panelists.
Let me just mention three of the English speaking participants:
• Simon Egenfeldt-Nielsen of Serious Games Interactive and author of "The Educational Potential of Computer Games", will talk about lessons learned in the first ten years of the serious games movement.
The conference is taking place on March 16 and 17 in the ifs international filmschool, Cologne.

Attendance is free though space is limited. You can register here.
