Make your voice heard! COVID-19 & video games
Contribute to the science of video games. Participate in our studies. The aim of these studies is to understand people’s responses to the exposure to digital media to inform and demystify spontaneous sensory perceptions, cognition and behaviours experienced after playing video games, so-called Game Transfer Phenomena (GTP). The coronavirus outbreak […]
Game Transfer Phenomena Webinar hosted by GECON
I was recently interviewed by Dr Flavio Escribano from GECON.es (in Spanish). It was a rewarding discussion, on the overview of Game Transfer Phenomena and on envisioning the potential that applying the GTP framework can have for learning using video games. GECON.es event announcement.
Participate: Study on sports & simulation video games
What is the study about? This survey is part of a series of studies to understand people’s responses to the exposure to digital media to inform and demystify Game Transfer Phenomena (GTP).
