4 Racing Academy Learning Task Racing Academy is a racing car simulation game. Racing Academy is a racing car simulation game. Make the learning task engaging to young people Make the learning task engaging to young people Make it challenging and complex, but still exciting and rewarding Make it challenging and complex, but still exciting and rewarding Make it authentic involving real practice, where learners can see the consequences of their actions Make it authentic involving real practice, where learners can see the consequences of their actions

5 Racing Academy Social Context Racing Academy is not only a simulation game it is also a massively multiplayer online game. Racing Academy is not only a simulation game it is also a massively multiplayer online game. Around commercial versions communities of gamers have grown. These communities discuss game tactics, information, buy and sell virtual goods and organise campaigns Around commercial versions communities of gamers have grown. These communities discuss game tactics, information, buy and sell virtual goods and organise campaigns

6 Racing Academy Social Context The idea with Racing Academy is to try and develop such a community of gamers. The idea with Racing Academy is to try and develop such a community of gamers. This community will not be based on a fictional world but on real physics. This community will not be based on a fictional world but on real physics. Members of the community will engage in discussions concerning engineering and physics Members of the community will engage in discussions concerning engineering and physics

7 Racing Academy Students Learning This is where the active involvement of the lecturers is very important. This is where the active involvement of the lecturers is very important. The initial design workshops will enable the lecturers to modify the design of racing academy to make it support their courses.
