Most current HE students will have grown up with computer and e-gaming technologies and may respond positively to education gaming as stimulating and effective learning tools. This interactive workshop will allow participants to individually use and evaluate two geoscience e-games that have been specifically developed for geoscience students and funded by the HEA. The egames are available to use on various commercial hardware, including on internet-connected computers, iPhone, iPad and Android mobile devices. Subsequent workshop group discussions, coupled with pilot study results of Keele University science undergraduates, will evidence this technology for student engagement, usability and usefulness as well as their potential for virtual employability skills.
