EDU 926 Gamification in Education
Gamification is the use of game design principles and elements in non-gaming environments. This course explores the elements and psychology of gamification as applied to the classroom environment, focusing on the application of these systems, gamification tech tools available for use, and developing gamification systems for classroom use.
Investigates “gamification,” the application of game-like mechanics to other areas of activity, such as classrooms and school. Examines examples of existing applications of gamification, the psychological research of playing games, and presents opportunities for the development of systems for gamifying classrooms.
