Today's learners are very different from the ones of 20 years ago; not only they are digital natives but have new profiles and preferences. This is strictly linked with one of the main problems in modern education: the lack of motivation and engagement in the learning process. Gamification in education and Game Based Learning, can be particularly effective to engage learners and promote active participation and motivation in the classroom and outside.
Participating in this course you will discover both how to integrate game-based mechanics and game thinking to turn the learning process as a whole into a game (Gamification) as well as practical apps and tools to use games as part of the learning process (Game Based Learning). Through an hands-on approach we will analyse and master together Game Based Learning apps and Gamification examples and we will reflect on how to use them with our learners and how to adapt the learning process towards our students’ needs, preferences and attitudes.
This structured course aims to introduce the participants to the world of Game Based Learning and Gamification and guide the participants through the principles, possibilities, apps and tools that can allow them to address today’s education challenges and adapt the learning process to students’ needs and profiles.
The general aim of this course is to foster excellence in education by empowering teachers, school staff and managers with the needed knowledge and skills to use game thinking, approaches and elements in education and effectively apply gamification principles and mechanisms in school settings.
