Åsa frequently uses game based learning in her courses, and will share her experience from this together with Jonathan Sterner from Insert Coin (former Mobile Storytelling).
Chalmers and Insert Coin have been working together since 2015 to enhance and simplify learning with the help of gamification and developed an app game in order to level up the engagement among the students. The app is still active and is called Level of Automation, in the game you take the role as a production engineer who will be responsible for building up a system of production. How and why you could and should unlock the next level of game based learning will be the centerpiece of the joint presentation.

How to adopts gamification in product and organizational development - for better and for worse...

In a few years, most of us will be wearing smart glasses (AR), which will revolutionize every industry. The smart glasses have cameras that can be used for various computer vision and deep learning tasks to always stay close to the contextual situation of the person wearing the smart glasses. This opens up for fantastic opportunities in gamification. When you know exactly where a person is, what he/she is doing and why, giving the person the correct incentives at all times is much easier than today. In most cases, the system will only be adding instead of also asking the user to provide information.
