Creating an Online Game for Farm SafetyBegley, Robert D. (2013-04-01)The New York Center for Agricultural Medicine and Health (NYCAMH) has a need for a web-based educational game to educate families on farm safety. This project demonstrates a proposed game design that combines the elements of gaming that enhance learning with the feedback received from NYCAMH. Feedback was solicited through a series of prototypes delivered to NYCAMH through an agile software development process. The proposed design follows a constructivist approach to place the learner in a context based on reality. The aspects of the game design that engage and motivate students by blending entertainment with learning are discussed. A prototype for this project can be found at http://web.cs.sunyit.edu/~begleyr/nycamh/prototype_5/.
