Fun is just another word for learning - Using a game design framework in Moodle

Moodle for Motivation

"There is a lot more in him than you guess, and a deal more than he has any idea of himself" (Gandolf).

Gamification in education is a design process that re-frames goals to be more appealing and achievable.

Professor Dweck would describe the quote above as a 'Growth Mindset' which creates resilience in learners. The social constructionist pedagogy underpinning Moodle is in alignment with game design thinking and developing a Growth Mindset.

Come along and hear how applying these concepts in my Digital Media class has improved attendance, participation and completion rates. I will demonstrate a Gamification Framework I use to choose the best Moodle activity at each phase of the learning journey.

This presentation maps research and observations by Game Designers (Koster, VanDenBerghe, Bartle), Pyschologists (Mayer, Dörner) Storytellers (Palmer) & Educators (Dweck) to deepen our understanding of the power of fun, motivation and play in education.
