Abstract

In the course, participants can enhance interpersonal interactions, learn the themes and issues adventure education attempts to deliver, and train their problem-solving abilities with digital games. Thirty teenagers aged between 19 and 25 in Taiwan were invited to participant the course. Four aspects were evaluated with questionnaire in this study and the results show that the participants have positive attitudes toward the learning themes of adventure education, problem-solving abilities, interpersonal interactions, and game effectiveness about the six digital games in the GILT course.
