PUT YOUR LEISURE HOURS TO GOOD USE WITH SERIOUS GAMES
In late 2013, Gabe traveled to 12 cities worldwide for GSummit Global, a series of full-day workshops and meetups to bring GSummit closer to gamification fans. As a part of GSummit Global, we created 10 new webinars and videos by gamification and engagement professionals. We will be releasing them publicly as we keep counting down to GSummit 2014.
Adam Penenberg (@Penenberg) is a journalism professor at New York University, author of “Play At Work” and editor of PandoDaily, and in this seminar he talks about examples of games in non-game activities from historic methods of teaching human anatomy to modern companies gamifying training.
Watch the video webinar below and learn how, when faced with the fact that people spend a combined 100’000 YEARS on Facebook every MONTH, Luis von Ahn of Carnegie Mellon University and other enthusiasts came up with several successful games that were also simultaneously solving bigger problems like old text image recognition, protein folding, and translating the Internet, thus advancing technology and science via games.
Watch out for 5 more GSummit Global videos over the next 6 weeks!
