Abstract

Digital games are very popular amongst the digital natives; they use them for entertainment engagement, enjoyment and fun. With the emergence of the internet and mobile apps edutainment and gamification is also becoming increasingly important in the educational sector. With the rapid development of mobile technologies and applications, games are now entering a new era where their purpose is no longer for entertaining only but also for educating and informing. Games can offer interactive learning activities and tasks that can foster collaboration and creativity. Drawing on the experience of gamification, this explorative paper examines key strategies by which instructors can introduce interactive mobile game elements to the classroom in ways that are simple and engaging.
