Abstract

Even though in the past significant research in digital game-based learning has been published, scholars all believed that digital game-based learning is better than traditional lecture instruction, producing better learning effects and higher learning motivation, previous studies have ignored the urban-rural differences in mathematics learning effects and influences of incorporating digital games into instructional strategies for mathematics learning. This paper uses the quasi-experiment method to examine the learning effects of using digital game-based learning in mathematics class for urban and rural elementary schools. Research results show that digital game-based learning produced better mathematics learning effects for urban and rural students compared to traditional classroom instruction.
