Abstract

Educational games have seen grown interest in recent years. At the same time, there has been interest in the research of hybrid media. Hybrid media is a combination of print and electronic media. In this paper we present a first study on the design of educational language games for hybrid media platform. Based on scenario interviews and supportive research, we present a design framework which can be used to aid the design of educational language games. For our study, we interviewed six elementary school teachers and 16 6th grade students aging from 11 to 12 years. We also interviewed four study book authors and examined educational language games.
