Gamification in Education Course
Gamification in Education Course for teachers
Gamification in Education Course description
The Gamification course goal is to learn techniques that transfer the mechanics of games to the educational field in order to achieve better results, either to better gain some knowledge, improve some skills, or reward specific actions, among many other objectives. Recently it is a very preferred methodology in education, since it increases the attractiveness of learning processes, innovation, fun, productivity, the ability to retain concepts and the acquisition of skills. In this course you will learn the elements of gamification, the types of gamification, the gamification tools in education, applying gamification in the classroom, examples of gamification in education and much more. After this course, our participants will be able to change the dynamics of their classroom by replacing the traditional role of the teacher, by creating an ideal learning environment through games that meet the learners’ needs.
