Session Description :
Based on the bestselling learning book, “The Gamification of Learning and Instruction” this presentation introduces, defines, and describes the concepts of gamification, games for learning and interactivity. It then dissects the elements of games and describes how they can be applied to the design and development of interactive learning.
The presentation is based on solid research including peer-reviewed results from dozens of studies that offer insights into why game-based thinking and mechanics makes for vigorous learning tools. Not all games or gamification efforts are the same, creating engaging learning using game-based thinking requires matching instructional content with the right game mechanics and game thinking. Moving beyond the theoretical considerations, the presentation explores three methods for designing interactive learning based on concepts from games.
