After graduating from the University of Malta, from a four year course in Bachelors of Education(Hons) degree in Computing, Marouska Bugeja has been teaching as a full time secondary teacher at St.Francis School for the past three years, teaching Computing, IT and Mathematics. She has in fact just attained her Permanent Teacher’s warrant. She has been involved in various educational jobs before and during her time as a student at the University of Malta and so has been exposed to a variety of different learning environments and different learner abilities. From all these experiences, she was always interested in the effect of digital game playing on young and adolescent learners, as she noticed their engagement in such activities seems natural. During her studies she in fact attended to extra workshops for game development and also attempted to develop games which can be used in the classroom to enhance motivation and learning in the students. She in fact focused her dissertation on the effect of digital games on adolescents with Asperger’s syndrome (AS) which forms part of the Autistic spectrum. Using the Wii console she could identify how game playing effected social interactions and collaboration and what properties of games aided or hindered these processes. She was also part of EMBED in 2011 where students had the opportunity to engage in a game to try out their mathematics and language skills. Having proof that the correct digital games can enhance social skills and can serve as a good motivational activity for students, she also utilised ready-made online games in her math class, where she could notice that students who made use of such games seemed to improve their calculation skills. As a secondary school teacher, Marouska seeks to find ways of motivating the students and create a desire to learn, making learning an interesting process by delivering lessons accompanied by digital game playing which can help the student understand the scope of the topic while serving as a fun consolidation of what has been delivered in the classroom. She wishes to further her studies by exploring what aspects of digital games trigger the mind and how can these be used in an educational process to motivate our students to engage in the educational process.
