Learning With Games: Experiences From a Norwegian Upper-secondary School
Rune Klevjer, Tobias Staaby, Aleksander Husøy

In this symposium paper, we report our experience with using off-the-shelf video games at a Norwegian upper-secondary school over the last 3-4 years. A broad range of game-centred teaching units have been tried out, by ourselves and others, across 5 different subjects and totalling roughly 200 classroom hours. We reflect on what we have learned so far, discuss some key strategies and guiding principles, and also present some preliminary findings from a recent classroom study.
