Gamification Strategies

Date Thursday, Dec 7  Time   –   

What are the reasons we want to play – and stay motivated to keep playing? This session will present the reasoning behind the creation of a web and mobile application to improve engagement, as well as distill key lessons from Pokémon Go and how these can be used to create more motivating online and blended learning experiences. Once the scene is set, we will engage you as we aim to crowdsource principles for applying gamified learning in a fun and academic manner.
