Educationally Adaptive and Beyond: Balanced Games for Balanced Learning

A key factor of the success and efficacy of an educational medium is the extent to which it is capable of addressing the preference, abilities, strength, weaknesses, and goals of individual learners. The same holds true for serious, in particular educational, games. Because the key strength of serious games is seen in their intrinsic motivational potential, it’s all about focusing on the learners. More importantly, in contrast to conventional educational systems, in games this means to account for both, a game related and an educational related hemisphere. This report attempts to emphasize the importance of advancing a construct such “educational game AI” and it illustrates recent technologies and approaches.
