  4. 4. Concept arising from: - Serious games - Serious games are simulations of real-world events or processes designed for the purpose of solving a problem. Although serious games can be entertaining, their main purpose is to train or educate users, though it may have other purposes, such as marketing or advertisement - Pervasive games - A pervasive game is one where the gaming experience is extended out in the real world,[1] or where the fictive world in which the game takes place blends with the physical world. - Alternative reality - alternative reality is a hypothetical or fictional self-contained separate reality coexisting with one's own - Playful reality - the architects of the new virtual reality are inventing a world you never imagined: call it the playful world. - It's a world of interactive, Web-based toys that instantly collapse the gulf between wish and existence, space and time, animate and inanimate. It's a world where the entire fabric of the material world becomes manipulable, programmable, mutable. Situated at the crossroads of high technology and popular culture, the playful world is taking shape at the speed of electronic creativity. GAMIFICATION

It aims at inspiring people to define what is important to them, discover what motivates them, and to take meaningful daily actions in all areas of their lives. It’s an example of the gamification trend, which uses game-like mechanics in non-game applications. But in this case, Mindbloom’s aim is to gamify life itself. Examples of Gamification

  15. 15. CloudApp SuMO has created an app for engaging employee in sustainability initiatives and drive behaviour changes. It companies the power of social network, games mechanics (this in research terms is called Gamification) and the sustainability aims, which support the accelerated achievement of Corporate sustainability goals and the associated costs savings.. Example of Gamification 1. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MVxgUKY8Z4w&authuser=0 2. https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/images/cleardot.gif and 3. https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/images/cleardot.gif
  16. 16. CloudApp Each employee has is own personalised view of how they are on target with: 1. the company sustainability view 2. his/her own personal progress 3. It suggests actions which are relevant to the employee (e.g. use video conferencing more). 4. A competitive element is provided by an employee chart where one can see how s/he has scores as compared to other people in a similar role.
  17. 17. PROS AND CONS OF GAMIFICATION Rewards and recognitions earned during game play must be carefully considered  The users usually initially like the game, but they tend to withdraw if they don’t continue to get praise and appreciation or if it feels like the expectations keep going up and up and up with too little reward. Over the last few years, we've seen a massive uptake of social technology.  Major vendors hoping to turn retail into a richer online experience customers will spend less on other things and begin to avoid going to the mall for shopping as recreation (e.g. eBay).  The risk is that the player might forget s/he is playing with real money and not monopoly money.
  18. 18. PROS AND CONS OF GAMIFICATION Gamification provides metrics Everything is made clear , like game rules, and provided with a structure that is simple to understand when it comes to success and rewards A trainer or educator just how a user or participant is progressing through a particular process by looking at scores and feedback Ethical considerations Balancing Metrics with Real Engagment  “I want the game, and its mechanics, to help them develop a love for and curiosity about history, rather than a love for the points or badges they can earn for getting the ‘so-called’ facts correct”
  19. 19. PROS AND CONS OF GAMIFICATION Gamification creates competitions  this can be both positive and negative Balancing Metrics with Real Engagment  “I want the game, and its mechanics, to help them develop a love for and curiosity about history, rather than a love for the points or badges they can earn for getting the ‘so-called’ facts correct”
  20. 20. PROS AND CONS OF GAMIFICATION Cost vs individualized instructions A fully game-based curriculum represents a substantial increase in cost over standard book/paper/pencil education. Each student can work toward mastering at their own pace Distraction from other objectives The idea that playing games pulls learners from other more valuable skills must also be addressed. Games can be limited in their content and the context that they present for learning.
  21. 21. PROS AND CONS OF GAMIFICATION Social isolation vs technology litteracy One of the biggest ongoing criticisms of games, and technology in general, is that it promotes anti-social behavior and isolates individuals. The focus of most new games is in social play. While players may not be interacting face-to-face they are interacting nonetheless. Shortened attention span vs Multitasking mentality Criticism to all modern media. New technologies have often rapid pace of action and the immediate feedback can make people expect the same kinds of fast-paced, instantaneous response of all things. However, with average completion times of 40 hours of intense concentration and problem solving, games do promote sustained focus, just in non-traditional ways!!
