I think I first came across with gamification in a blog post around 2010-2011. I wasn’t really into it, because we didn’t have any projects that we could use it for (such a bad thought as I see it now), and in Hungary it was – and still is – a rarely known area.
In the last few years I founded more knowledge organizations like a local Toastmasters club, a TEDx event, and a training company with 4 of my friends. The members of these groups love to learn and teach as well, and partly because of these desires many people join us. However I was afraid many of the members will drop out later. I started to search ways for better engagement and I quickly turned my attention to gamification.
I will bring a small case study from home. I will argue about the necessity of fun in education for students AND for teachers as well, and how we could do that with zero budget.
I’m a big fan of the Octalysis framework, so Joris Beerda’s talk is a must-hear one. Because of the educational focus, I’m really curious about Sylvester Arnab’s talk as well, but I’m planning to learn as much ideas during the conference as I can.
