Game based learning presentation

  1. 1. Gamification of Learning Presented by Ashley Anderson
  2. 2. The Problem with Traditional Learning • Skills and concepts are abstracted from their context • Education is more of an information distribution channel rather than a learning experience • not enough engagement and motivation • not enough feedback
  3. 3. Game Traditional Learning Tasks repetitive, but fun repetitive and dull Feedback constantly after each activity/test has been graded Failure expected, not too scary forbidden Status of Users transparent hidden Collaboration yes yes
  4. 4. What is Gamification? • use of game design elements in non-game contexts ! • improves user experience, engagement, and motivation in non-game settings ! • learning culture that aligns more closely to student’s habits and interests
  5. 5. How Gamification Can Improve Learning • Concepts are better retained and behaviors changed when the learner is engaged in the new information • allows learners to understand the context in which to apply skills • allows learners to take chances in a less threatening setting • learners can change their behavior based on feedback
  6. 6. Gamification Elements
  7. 7. Gamification Elements • collecting points • reaching levels • own pace (Saunderson, 2011) • storytelling (Kiili, 2005) • freedom to fail (Kapp, 2012) • goal focused (Saunderson, 2011) • obtaining feedback (Saunderson, 2011)
  8. 8. Quest to Learn (Q2L)
  9. 9. Is gamified learning more effective than traditional learning? Participants: 40 people interested in learning Japanese btw. ages 20-25 IV: learning tool (Rosetta Stone vs. Rosetta Stone Gamified) DV: test scores satisfaction level with the learning the tool Statistical Test: independent variables t-test
