The Power of Play in Learning From an Evolutionary Psychology Perspective  

As children, we learned through play. We sang our ABCs, played house, and used flashcards to learn multiplication. If this is how we naturally learn, why wouldn’t we use similar learning techniques as adults?

The reason the Gamification of learning is so successful is because it engages our brain in ways that we naturally learn. 

Unlike other programs on Gamification, this webinar approaches game-base learning from an evolutionary psychology perspective. It’s not just that games are fun; it’s that game mechanics provide brain-chemical “rewards.” When learning is pleasurable, we are more likely to desire it, engage with it, and apply it.

If you’ve ever wanted to make a case for gamification, but felt you didn’t have a theoretical or scientific  basis for your argument, you’ll want to attend this webinar.
