The Playful Educator
Open-ended education emerges when we combine play with serious challenges. More gameful than gamification, this idea is inspired by theories about situated action and emergent behaviour in decentralized systems. Instead of designing for goal-oriented behaviour, the situated actions model assumes that learners do not structure their activity beforehand, but that activity grows as the interaction in the context of use occurs. This presentation was given as part of CounterPlay Festival 2016 by Associate Professor Rikke Toft Nørgård.
