Rating: 0/5

The use of video games and augmented reality in education has become a major new trend. It comes from the idea that play holds an important role in student’s learning, and supports intellectual, emotional and social well-being.

Gwen Dewar’s, Ph.D. research has shown that play can improve memory and stimulate the growth of the cerebral cortex, provide new ways for learner engagement in academic tasks as well as contribute to language skills development, and promote creative problem-solving.

The course aims to introduce participants with 6 clusters of innovative pedagogies putting emphasis on the Gamification and using Augmented Reality in education.

During the course participants will learn about key elements for the effective implementation of pedagogical
principles of play and games (gamification) and augmented reality in the formal learning in order to make learning fun and engaging. Participants will also discuss challenges of using gamification and augmented reality in learning environments and how to overcome them.

The course also aims to develop participants’ awareness and creativity in innovative pedagogies, that address 21st-century competencies & challenges as well as meet the educational goals of the educational system and students.

After the completion of the course, the participants will be able to make informative decisions about pedagogy and the ways they can design learning environments to match learners’ needs to create, express themselves, collaborate with others and discover.
