Gamification Conference in Pori
DIVERTIMENTO offers 7 family-friendly heritage games in Greece, Italy, Spain, Slovenia, Romania, Bulgaria and Turkey to be played at 70 geolocations along EUROTHENTICA, the Transnational Cultural Route.
The 1st International Conference in gamification, held on the 8th-10yh of May 2017 in Pori, Finland has offered an unprecedented opportunity to the DIVERTIMENTO Transnational Partnership to apply gamification and making technology more engaging, by encouraging the audience to engage in desired behaviors, by showing a path to mastery and autonomy, by helping to solve problems and not being a distraction, and by taking advantage of humans' psychological predisposition to engage in gaming. New methodologies of learning allow for the acquisition of knowledge, skills, and basic competencies are becoming participatory in nature, where learning is produced by means of the customized experiences. In this sense, education and gamification go hand in hand, not only in a new technological environment, but also in the educational context.
