Description in original language:
Linear public goods games are often used for classroom experiments to present the voluntary contribution mechanism (VCM) and the free-riding problem. The main principle of the game is a participant's choice: whether to contribute to the provision of public goods and to maximize group welfare, or not to contribute at all or to contribute less because these strategies could be seen as more optimal privately. The focus of this article is to choose a proper version of the linear public goods game, to modify and to simplify it as much as possible while respecting basic principles of the linear public goods games. There are two groups of these games - frontal/direct or face-to-face and computerized versions. We concentrated our attention on the first group of the games and analyzed it more deeply. The important factors we had to take into account were the size of the group for our experiment and time consumption. First, we chose a paper version using cards and found a lot problems connected with its performance. The paper based design of the game consumes an inordinate amount of class time and was seen as cumbersome and obsolete by both students and teachers. We suggest using of smartphones and basic online Google forms to overwhelm these obstructions. The main benefits of using the application Google forms is an easy data entry by using smartphones and possibility to display the results immediately that enables to focus on the discussion and the decision-making processes in the class. This change enabled us to obtain first empirical results of a classroom game: we were interested whether the level of contribution rate is affected by gender, cost of contribution, possibility to discuss the group strategy and the rate of recurrence of the situation. We could identify decline of contribution rate at the end of experiment in all groups. Lower cost of contribution motivated participants to contribute in the subsequent rounds only. The discussion of the group strategy had very short-term effect on the level of contribution. The unplanned issue to observe was absence of anonymity in one group under certain circumstances and its effect on gender differences. Finally, we could compare our data briefly with the results of some already published studies.
