Exploring Novel Learning Practices Through Co-Designing Mobile Games

Abstract [en]

Co-design practices have been the focus of current research efforts in the field of educational technologies but not as prevalent in mobile games to support learning. Setting the design focus on the entire learning experience including game based activities can provide richer opportunities for evaluation for informal activities. The flow of mobile activities can be captured by using techniques such as tagging technology that combine users’ active contributions and reflections with the exchange of data between devices and systems. This chapter presents how co-design offered insights to the design and evaluation of a mobile game called Skattjakt (Treasure Hunt in Swedish) and the benefits it can have for future learning activities. Two completed trials over the last year and a third trial in progress have provided us with valuable results that can help us to bridge learning in informal and formal settings. Moreover, we believe that involving children in the design process for mobile games may give us new perspectives regarding the nature of their learning practices while learning with these games.
