Summary

There is a huge potential in the field of Educational Gamification. Humans have an innate desire to learn. However, too often the current systems “get in the way of our education.” Asking children what is "work," they will often say, “school and homework!” But when asked what is "play," many will say, “videos and games!” Clearly there should be a way to help kids learn from what they do best – play. This is why many educators are looking into a variety of new tools and techniques in Educational Gamification. Yu-kai Chou will present how Gamification is far more than just "Points, Badges, Leaderboards" and introduce the "Human-Focused" approach as an effective design tool for education.
