Why don’t we involve more games in class?

It’s very easy to learn by playing a game… Why don’t we involve more games in class? Gamification in education costs a lot of time which teachers don’t have. One student-team solved this challenge during the 24-hour Education Hackathon on 3 and 4 October. They designed an online platform to easily create games on basis of existing successful games. It saves a lot of time since it is not necessary to design & test the games.

In total 5 motivated teams were working 24-hours to design solutions. They did not sleep and were programming all-night-long. With lot’s of food, energy drinks, workshops, facilitators and expert mentors they were stimulated to come up with creative results.

Check out the details of the winning solution on the Education Hackathon website. The following months they will continue to work on their solution with support of YES!Delft and LDE CEL. Hopefully we can start experimenting with the solution & teachers at the Teaching Lab on campus very soon.
