How can you make learning in EdTech more effective and engaging?
About this Event
We will send you the Zoom Link 1h before the event.
Are you looking for creative ways to bring more experiential, interactive, and playful moments to your EdTech initiatives?
How could your EdTech app enhance your users’ engagement and ensure learning?
All these (and much more!) can vastly improve with a smart combination of experiential learning and gamification. What does this mean? Come to our workshop and find out in practice!
On Tuesday, August 4th, at 17:00 CEST, the XPlayned team (Romy and Antonis) will take you on a playful interactive journey to learn and experience an innovative way to bring experiential, gamified learning in EdTech. We will run an introductory FREE online workshop for the EdTech Circle of Factory Berlin, focusing on exactly that! In this 1.5 hour workshop, you will experience methods to make learning through your EdTech solutions more effective and engaging, taking your users’ journey to the next level.
Experiential and Gamified learning has the power to ensure holistic learning and long term memory retention, whilst being really fun! Science and research show that experiential, gameful, project-based learning is where the highest retention rates and most engagement and enjoyment happens in the learning process.
Just like the topic, this workshop will be highly interactive and playful. Please, do not expect to sit quietly and listen; come ready to take action!
This workshop is catered to anyone involved or interested in EdTech (from founders of EdTech startups and instructional designers of EdTech apps, all the way to educators trying to make the best of EdTech solutions for their classrooms), aiming to make learning through the EdTech solutions they have their hands on, truly experiential and gamified. Whether you are new to the educational part of EdTech or you are experienced and striving to improve the outcomes of your solutions, be sure to join us!
