What is Gamification

Gamification in education, or gamification in learning, is sometimes described using other terms: gameful thinking, game principles for education, motivation design, engagement design, etc. It is different from game-based learning in that it does not involve students making their own games or playing commercially-made video games. It operates under the assumption that the kind of engagement that gamers experience with games can be translated to an educational context towards the goals of facilitating learning and influencing student behavior.

– e-Inclusion using a Gamified Approach

To Digitally

This will be a creation and a collection of pedagogical games made available online for teachers to use in the e-classroom context as a way to promote inclusion of students coming from disadvantageous contexts and backgrounds, while raising awareness against discrimination and cyberbullying and in favour of a sound and respectful environment among the School’s community. This will strongly impact on students due to its ludic and competitiveness character.
