April 2019 Events
May was about “Serious gaming or gamification”
Serious games to create a better world in a playful way by with Rene Luigies
Date: Thursday April 4th 17:45-19:00
About this presentation
Serious games become a major game changer. In healthcare they are used to collect data from patients and healthcare workers. These data are applied again with the objective to change behavior, to influence lifestyle and above all, to create a positive life, all in a playful maner. It all fits in the objective of a global paradigm shift, not to treat sickness to make people happy, but to create positive health and wellbeing in order to avoid sickness. And this does not only apply to healthcare, but also to employment forces, even to the overall society. Our intention is to reach 1 billion people in five years to create a better world. During the workshop you will see and experience several games / tools with this purpose. And you will be asked to score a “like it” (leuk) or “don’t like it”(jeuk) on post-its. At the end we will collect these, categorize and come to a conclusion how every body can support to change the world with gaming techniques. All you need to bring is a good mood and a sense of humor.
