This session is brought to you from the core mind of game designers. If you want to build a sustainable gamification framework that fits your program objectives you have to think like a game designer, you have to dig much deeper than just setting activities and contributing it to game points and badges. The traditional PBL (Points, Badges & Leaderboards) mechanics are losing its value by time because players are getting highly exposed to the same concept everywhere they go and specially if generation Z are among your audience, so it’s time for a change, it’s time to learn how to deconstruct successful game dynamics and extract meaningful elements for your program design. You will be introduced to 3 major game design pillars that you have to consider while designing your framework, hence paving your way to select the suitable game mechanics that you need to complement the traditional PBL and add meaningful engagement to your program. This session is highly beneficial for designers, researchers and content developers to learn how to: 1. Deconstruct games. 2. Identify game elements impact on player’s psychology. 3.
