Games, Gamification and the Quest for Interactivity
Engaging learners is a difficult task. They are constantly confronted with distractions and demands on their time. So how can we create instruction that pulls learners into the content and helps them gain the knowledge required to be successful? How do we grab and hold a learner's attention? How do we motivate them to engage with the content we are teaching? Participate in this session and engage in solving this mystery in this interactive, presentation.
