Abstract or Summary
  • This study examined the Water Footprint Computer Assisted Board Game (WFCABG) as a tool for enhancing the social learning of water resources issues surrounding commodities trade. The study engaged 73 students from various countries and professional backgrounds, in two academic settings in two different countries: Oregon State University (United States) and University for Peace (Costa Rica). Data were collected through pre- and post-game surveys, model outcomes, follow-up feedback sessions, and observations. The study survey design was based on the Medema, Furber, Adamowski, Zhou, & Mayer (2016) Social Learning Assessment Framework, which consists of four categories: properties of participants, properties of collaboration, properties of relationships, and properties of knowledge. The simulation was facilitated by the author and tested 12 times. The results showed a significant change in participants’ perceptions and knowledge. The least change occurred in the properties of relationships. The chi square analysis revealed that individual characteristic (country of origin) was an important factor that marked the players’ outcomes in the WFCABG. The game results were statistically significant and largely close among the 12 groups and across individual players from diverse demographics. The WFCABG simulation had a great effect on learning by increasing the students’ familiarity and enriching their understanding of water-related management issues, enhancing their negotiation skills, and increasing the learning.
