About the project:
Gamification is the process of using game mechanics and game thinking in non-gaming contexts to engage users and to solve problems. Another way to explain it is that gamification consists on making daily tasks more enjoyable by introducing gaming elements. In nowadays generation gamification can become an useful tactic to encourage specific attitudes, and increase motivation and engagement. Though commonly found in marketing strategies, it is now started being implemented in some educational programs as well, facilitating learning experience and influencing behaviours of gamers. If structured well, a gamification system utilises the psychic drivers that people want to experience, creating novel ways of forming and extending relationships and encouraging long-term engagement and loyalty. That is to say, a successful system leverages natural human instinct to form a community, to achieve and to feel recognised and rewarded in our daily lives.
“Let’s GAMIFY” will be focused on developing specific competencies in designing educational games for youth workers, facilitators, educators and trainers, on topics related to social exclusion and global challenges who believe games are an efficient tool to increase the awareness, information and education level among young people at risk.
