Abstract

Instilling Islamic values in our children has become a key concern as they become more acquisitive and fixated on carving a path towards academic and financial success. Serious Games can be an ideal medium for inculcating Islamic values such as sociability, responsibility, compassion, forgiveness etc. As such, Shimpai Muyou! serious game has been developed to prepare children for real life challenges through constructive discussion and feedback to change relationships in positive ways. The architecture consists of two mutually interacting layers: Instructional Mode and Narrative Mode. To measure success in Shimpai Muyou! environment three types of data gathering techniques have been used including Participant Observation, Classroom Discussion Forums and Log File Analysis supplemented by Interviews. Findings from the early prototype evaluation are promising, but indicate the critical need for a broader investigation to establish Shimpai Muyou! as a useful addition to the range of approaches teachers use to build Islamic morals in children.
