Welcome to the main page of the TESC Games Wiki. This page began with the program, Playing to Learn: Games in Education, Management, and Social Change, offered in the 2015-16 academic year by Joli Sandoz and John Baldridge. The intent of the TESC Games Wiki project is for students to develop a catalog (with taxonomic categories) of learning games and learning game design resources available in the campus library.
Entries added to the TESC Games Wiki should include some robust, theory-driven assessment of the games and resources as potential game-based learning tools. Students in Playing to Learn should definitely make reference to key theoretical frameworks they studied in Rules of Play, by Salen & Zimmerman, and James Paul Gee's What Video Games Have to Teach Us About Learning and Literacy. They might also consider using the game play analysis and review worksheets as a template for posting entries to this Wiki.
The creators of this Wiki anticipate some fruitful disorder as the taxonomy develops, and look forward to its evolution over time!
