Abstract

With the continuous recommendations to educate students for the 21st century, educators need to create educational environments for students that promote new skills in addition to learn content. Problem-based learning is one of the recommended settings to involve students in learning and practicing skills. Looking at the design of educational video games as a design problem, Hung’s 3C3R model for design problems provides a framework for promoting 21st century skills. Recommendations to use the 3C3R model for game designing in classroom settings are provided.
