The State of the Surveys: Framing and Informing Research on Games and Learning
Barry Fishman, Lori Takeuchi, Michelle Riconscente, Seeta Pai

As the field of games and learning grows, our need for varied research approaches to inform and shape work in the areas of policy, design, development, and implementation of games grows as well. What do we know about the context(s) for games in formal and informal learning settings? What are the attitudes, beliefs, and practices of players, learners, educators, parents, policy-makers, and designers? How do these factors interact to create complex settings for game-use?

Panelists, from Common Sense Media, the Joan Ganz Cooney Center, and New York University's CREATE lab, each played key roles in the design of prominent surveys in games and learning. The presentation will highlight questions addressed by recent surveys about games and learning, share what has been learned from these surveys, and invite discussion among both panelists and the audience to identify high-need areas for further research.
