Gamification is the application of game principles to something that is not necessarily a game and this should not be confused with serious games. The goal of serious games is to train or teach somebody something.

Γιώργος Παπαναστασίου's insight:

Πόσο δίκιο έχει. Αλλά πώς θα ...βγει η ύλη; είναι το ερώτημα των περισσοτέρων από εμάς όταν φτάσουμε στο σημείο να αποφασίσουμε, να κάνουμε τη μετάβαση από τον "μαύρο"πίνακα, στον προτζέκτορα και τον Η/Υ.

Χρειάζεται χρόνος για την ουσιαστική μετάβαση και να απαγκιστρωθούμε από το "σχολικό εγχειρίδιο". Τότε οι δυνατότητές  μας θα είναι απεριόριστες.

3 parties :

-la recherche dans laquelle les élèves interagissent dans des jeux sérieux stimulants, ils peuvent se faire aider par un concepteur de jeux qui leur inculque les principes de conception de jeux.

-l'atelier où les élèves appliquent ce qu'ils ont appris dans la partie "recherche" . Ils produisent leurs propres jeux.

-Game Alley où les joueurs publient leurs jeux et voient comment les autres jouentet font un retour auprès de la communauté des apprenants.

Le logiciel Gamestar Mechanic propose une large variété de ressources pour enseigner et pour aider les enseignants à incorporer l'apprentissage par le jeu dans leur pédagogie....pour raconter des histoires, pour modéliser les systèmes en sciences et pour enseigner la conception de jeux en technologie
