Having worked in education overseas for a decade, I arrived in Canberra and was surprised at how little technology and game play was used in the classroom. This started a journey of design, develop and play! In 2014 Quizling entered the App Store, and what was an app for my high school classroom, became a hit in primary school, and with adults.
I now work with national institutions like the NGA, NLA and the Royal Australian Mint, with schools around Australia, and with corporations who have content they want to engage people with. The pedagogy behind quizzes make a simple game an excellent educational tool for all ages, that combines great design and game play with increased engagement, retention and attitudes to learning. Supported by research, this presentation will demonstrate the power of game play, the importance of questioning and show how an idea for my classroom, has led to great learning.
