Gaming The System

The Mental Motivator

Wednesday, February 17th, 2016 | 10h40 - 11h35

Innovation in gaming is transforming the way people interact with content. Game based learning and methods of gamification are gaining in popularity at home, on the go and in the classroom. Gamification and adaptive learning is being used to address students with specific learning needs, while working to increase the motivation to learn. In its infancy, gamification worked as extrinsic motivation, inspiring students to work harder for more badges, points and promotions. But now, gamification is maturing and expanding across various industries, changing the way we experience and engage with daily life.

 

How are gamification strategies being used to establish intrinsic motivation in learners? How do we treat the learning difficulties that plague students from learning for the genuine pleasure of it? Are learning anxieties hampering self-guided discovery? How is education adapting to deliver more curated learning experiences?

 

Our panel of experts will investigate what is at the heart of increasing, and instilling, a long lasting motivation to learn through innovative platforms and gamified strategies.

Hacking Into You

The Transformation of Learning

Wednesday, February 17th, 2016 | 13h45 - 14h35

Futurists are predicting that we will have cyborg brains by as early as 2030. According to tech visionary Ray Kurzweil, the brain may become enhanced with DNA nanobots that connect to the cloud, allowing us to enhance our vision, develop hypernormal focus and improve memory retention.  As we continue to explore the functionalities of the brain, we discover new and exciting ways of hacking into our cognitive abilities.

 

How will these innovations transform our current perceptions of what it means to learn? What does this mean for the future of learning, whether in school or in the workforce? How will bio-hacking increase worker resilience in a rapidly transforming economy? How should we prepare for a future connected to the cloud?

With the Web as a tool, we can access the resources we need and connect with the people we want to learn from whenever we want. Access to ubiquitous and abundant information challenges our long held and fundamental beliefs around the purpose of schools, teaching, and learning. As students graduate into this globally networked world, should we reconsider our beliefs around learning to better prepare them for the future?
