Gamified Immersive learning and Assessment for Preventative Healthcare – How to make gamification for social good self-financing (or even profitable).


13:30 – 13:45

COVID-19 has placed a strong spotlight on preventative healthcare as Governments across the globe struggle to motivate (or force) citizens into adopting health safety measures. Measures such as social isolation and distancing, closure of mass public events, limitation of physical contact, wearing of face masks and use of hand sanitisers are increasingly unpopular and difficult to enforce. Gamification as a strategy has proved to be successful in influencing human behaviour in health management scenarios. This 15 minute lightning talk shares the presenter’s practical experience of gamification for personal health management over the last 7 years and illustrates how a combination of gamification and technology can achieve results such as a weight loss of 21kg in 3 months and a reversal of pre-diabetic symptoms.

This talk will cover :-

• The challenges of gamification applied to personal health management
• The benefits of corporate gamification for health management as a staff benefit
• How to develop effective strategies for gamifying personal health
• A practical example of gamified learning and assessment to tackle coronavirus in a self-sustaining ecosystem

Delegates attending this talk will learn how to make gamification for social good financially self-sustaining or even profitable.
