Gamification for learning: keeping it serious

25 February 2021, recording

Gamification has penetrated our lives. It is exploited in the service sector, advertising, developing business processes, human resources management, and other areas. Gamification has become an effective means in education as it improves motivation and engagement in learning, enhances students’ confidence, increases knowledge retention, and the number of completed tasks.

Despite the compelling arguments, questions remain: is gamification always appropriate? Does it suit everyone?

At the EduTech seminar we will learn the fine grain of gamification and will be pondering the following issues:

  • Do adults need gamification or is it a privilege for children?
  • Game, gamification, or simulation: which is best for learning?
  • How to choose the mechanics of gamification for educational tasks?
  • How can games help evaluate outcomes of the learning?
