Games and Gamification: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Considerable attention has been paid to the potential impact of games on learning. One difficulty is finding or building games to support learning objectives. What if one could take the elements of a game that make it engaging and integrate those into a class to make it as engaging as a game? This idea is the focus of Robinson’s TLT Fellowship. Questions included: 1) How can game-like elements improve student engagement and motivation? 2) How can we design game-like elements to be instructionally effective? This session will discuss benefits and challenges of using game-like elements in classes.
