Durch Computerspiele besser in Mathe

Kommentieren 24. June 2008

Was unsere Spiele-Gruppe im Workshop bereits angedeutet oder unterschwellig angenommen hat, wurde in einer amerikanischen Studie empirisch untersucht:

Die University of Central Florida hat eine Hypothese getestet, dass interaktive Mathe-Spiele effektiver als Unterricht sind. Damit beschäftigte sich eine Studie mit dem Titel “The Effects of Modern Math Computer Games on Learners’ Math Achievement and Math Course Motivation in a Public High School Setting” von Mansureh Kebritchi, Ph.D., Atsusi Hirumi, Ph.D. und Bai Haiyan, Ph.D.

In ihrer Zusammenfassung formulieren sie:

Students who played the math video games scored significantly higher on the district-wide math benchmark exam, F (1, 188) = 6.93, p < .05, and on the math performance test generated by the publisher, F (1, 188) = 8.37, p <.05, than students who did not play the games.

[…]

Teacher and student interviews support the quantitative findings. The majority of the

interviewed teachers (4 of 5) and students (15 of 15) reported that the participants’

mathematics understandings and skills improved as a result of playing the mathematics games.

[…]

The results also support findings from two meta-analysis, including: (a) Vogel et al. (2006) who concluded that interactive simulations and games were more effective than traditional

classroom instruction on learners’ cognitive gains based on a review of 32 empirical studies,

and (b) Dempsey et al. (1994) who concluded that students who played math video games and attended the traditional classroom instruction achieved higher mathematics score than students who only attended traditional classrooms based on 94 empirical studies.
