“Gamification” and “Serious Games” are both very popular terms today, but what does each mean? How do they overlap and how are they different? In this session, Peter will examine Gamification and Serious Games, looking at what each entails and more importantly the strengths and weaknesses each offer for learning solutions. You’ll get hands-on with a couple of case studies to begin trying these strategies yourself.

In addition to his coding and teaching experience, he also brings a background in instructional design and multimedia development. Peter has had a lifelong interest in educational and instructional games; in his free time he develops in Unity3D and has taught a Unity3D Virtual Reality/Augmented Reality coding bootcamp.
