Coursebook activities meet gamification | Online | Troika Trends

Sobre o evento
Taking a coursebook and using it as it is, doing one activity after the other can be rather predictable and boring for learners. This does not mean, however, that the activities per se are not good, nor that we should ditch them completely. With a twist assisted by gamification, we can make even the most repetitive activity fresh again. After all , the core idea of gamification is to take elements of games and use them in non-game contexts, leading to greater fun and engagement. In this webinar we will discuss some elements of games that can be used to revamp coursebook activities and look into some typical coursebook activities. We will work together to build up ideas on how we can use these elements to make the activities analysed more fun and engaging.
-Explicit vs implicit gamification
-Elements of games (e.g. scarcity, meaningful decisions, boss fights, challenge, mission)
-Adaptation of coursebook activities in different context
