- Using technology can actually be one of the most effective ways of engaging to capture and keep learners’ attention
- It’s not about using tech for tech’s sake, but maximising the pay back on content by looking at how it can be made more engaging.
- For example, rather than learning by rote, how about using an app that encourages repetition of items through gamification?
- The result tends to lessons that actually maintain attention, aid retention and improve performance over the long-term.
The term “gamification” applies when a large task is broken into many relatively minor, achievable goals which are salient in the form of points or trophies.
