From the innovation perspective, concepts such as serious gaming and gamification are among the most interesting and valuable topics in the domain of interactive mobile communication technologies and learning.
A Serious Game combines a serious intention with a game’s rules and targets. They are often considered to be technological applications that use games to engage individuals in an experience through which a learning or professional training aim can be explored. However, Gamification is the application of game design elements and game principles in non-game contexts. For example, a teacher using a point system with leaderboards to make their classes more interesting is using gamification concept, despite not featuring any serious games. So, even if you aren’t seeing any serious games in your daily life yet gamification is everywhere. Intrinsic motivation and the desire for personal development are the core area for the application of gamification.
Mobile Technology and Gamification Session (MTGS) provides the opportunity for scientists, researchers, programmers and designers working in the field of Serious Game, Gamification and related areas to share their experience, novel ideas and research results in various fields and applications such as Business, Science, Health, Education and Training.
