    Abstract

    This thesis is about the educational use of computer games. The fast growth of the use of digital games (on game consoles, personal computers and the Internet) in the last two decades has led to renewed attention to the role of game play in education (see for example Dawes and Dumbleton, 2001, McFarlane, Sparrowhawk, and Heald, 2002; Kirriemuir and McFarlane, 2003; Gee, 2003; Squire, 2004 and Egenfield-Nielsen, 2005) and to scientific research that could be used to design effective educational games.
