Gamification in Education
• What exactly is gamification and why is it such a hot topic in the education sector?
• How can the psychological principles of gaming be used to improve intended student and teacher outcomes?
• Can gamification be used to improve educational administration efficiency?
• How is gamification useful and what are the potential pitfalls?
These are just some of the questions that will be addressed by our two presenters, Rob Zepeda and Christian Walter, as we explore the topic of Gamification in Education. Please join us at Launchpad co-working space on September 4th at 7:00 p.m. to learn and network with the Bangkok EdTech community.
