Creating Gamified Systems and Mentality
What do you think of when you think of “Play”? We hear it all the time, the word “play” has been so engrossed in our understanding of childhood development and is the basis of inquiry and exploration. Is it possible we’re just tapping the surface? Could we be more strategic and intentional with play? Let’s deep dive into the complexity of play. Let’s understand and apply its mechanics and systems to foster holistic success. Let’s master how it influences our brains to grow, learn and adapt. In this workshop you will complete every level of the most effective tool to human development. You will learn how to wield play like a wand to conjure discovery, wellbeing, grit, growth mindset, social skills and holistic success. I believe if play can seriously equip children to unlock their potential for growth and joy. We will discuss:
How to use play and game theory to level up inspired learning environments.
Super-charge engagement with evidence based gamified psychology.
Mental and structural mechanics that foster strong core competency skills.
Proactive positive behaviour strategies.
