WIN OUR FIRST DEV CONTRACT BY JOINING THE WORLD 1ST HACK-A-BRIEF 24/02

WIN OUR FIRST DEV CONTRACT BY JOINING THE WORLD 1ST HACK-A-BRIEF 24/02 | Data Driven Positive Feedback Loops | Scoop.it

LOOKING FOR DESIGN/ DEV DUO FOR OUR WORLD FIRST HACK-A-BRIEF!! 24/02

 

Walk the Talk Behaviour Change Campaign seeking geeky design team.

Would you like London to be a healthier and safer place for you and your kids to live?

Do you think technology and games can help?

LOOP's insight:

We are looking for a small design/ dev team to join us at our Hack Lab on Monday 24th February

.

Some of the smartest change makers from global companies like Ogilvy, Intel and Ordinance Survey will join community and kids to develop the strongest possible starting point for this world first urban game.

 

Kids from local primary schools will be the judges on the day - and  our beta testers.

 

The best idea will be developed into a working prototype which will be developed for roll out across Brixton.

 

WALK THE TALK ?

The project will develop a smart, original digital solution to local air pollution.

 

WHY ?

We assume people will be healthier if they walk more.
The streets will feel safer if more people are out walking.

By driving less we assume the air quality will get better. 

Which will in turn make people healthier and feel better.

 

THE DAY?

This full day, fun, dynamic workshop will bring together industry experts, researchers, technologists and most importantly community leaders to collaboratively brainstorm and develop the best possible brief.

Four design teams will join the fun. 

One teams will win the contract to develop the Walk the Talk working prototype.


The day will run from 10am to 6pm at Prince of Wales, Brixton http://www.pow-london.com/

Then we’ll head for drinks and dinner straight after to carry on the creative conversation and networking.

Please let Gloria (gloria@looplabs.org) if you are interested.

Digital marketing: the value-add of gamification

Digital marketing: the value-add of gamification | Data Driven Positive Feedback Loops | Scoop.it
Gamification - a concept that involves making a service, application or platform more engaging by adding incentives. Gamification first became a household term in and around 2010 and since then, it has become an essential component of most digital and tech-based applications. Gartner estimates that by the year-end 2014, more than 70% of the world's largest 2,000 companies will deploy at least one gamified application.

Coelition sets the global standard for behavioural data

Coelition sets the global standard for behavioural data | Data Driven Positive Feedback Loops | Scoop.it
Coelition is a not-for-profit organisation that is creating international standards for the responsible use our behavioural data.
LOOP's insight:

An interesting organisation that is pushing for standards across behavioural data. There are clear ethical issues around how this data is used. While data offers an unprecident understanding of behaviour, which can be used to drive positive behaviour change - thre are clearly more malevalent uses. Discussions around data are crucial as we move into the age of #IOT
