It is a world leader in positive education and its model focuses on: making its graduates positive leaders who flourish as people and help others to transform, to ensure the competitiveness of their students in a global market economy and to promote well-being and happiness of the members of your community. All this based on the science of Positive Psychology. Tecmilenio University’s vision is to train people with a life purpose and the skills to achieve it. Its institutional values are Innovation, Human Sense, Teamwork, Global Vision and Integrity. What makes it unique in the world are its differentiators: the educational experience tailored to the students, learning by doing and the best place to study and prepare to be happy.

Tecmilenio University has created the Institute of Happiness Sciences, which promotes wellness through:

  • Teaching the foundations for a full life
  • The proposal of positive practices for the promotion of the happiness of its students and collaborators.
  • The investigation of the basic principles of well-being.
  • The dissemination of results derived from our experience and research.

Highlighted Theme

Gamification in education: key element of motivation

Traditional teaching methodologies are no longer adequate, in and of themselves, to meet the needs of students in today’s technologically engaged, interactive, and connected society. It was with this need in mind that, in 2006, the European Parliament recommended that students develop eight key competencies over the course of their compulsory education to prepare them for success in their working life. One of these is Digital Competency (DC), which opens to them the doors of digital technology and gives them opportunities to be actively involved in the new, twenty-first century knowledge society. Likewise, in its “Rethinking Education” strategy (2012), the European Commission has urged educational institutions to be diligent about integrating DC. So, as those responsible for instruction, we must be capable of accompanying them in this stage of education. Through gamification and the development of computational thinking, we can cover the content of the educational curriculum.

The primary feature of gamification is the application of game-design elements in non-game contexts. In this way, instruction that might be tedious and not very motivating, under traditional didactic methods, becomes appealing and inspiring. Games are instructional by nature, so this is a way of learning by doing. On the one hand, games develop essential competencies, such as observation, decision-making, speed, empathy, and intuition; on the other hand, they provide a controlled learning environment in terms of not only content but also moral values, frustration tolerance, internalization of rules, and strategies for success.

Gamification is not to be confused with video games (Parente, 2016), for gamification consists of presenting students with games, usually on a digital platform, that are centered on specific content and that students view as a challenge (Ripoll, 2016). This is how students develop Computational Thinking (Wing, 2006), which the Royal Society (2012) defines as “the process of recognising aspects of computation in the world that surrounds us, and applying tools and techniques from Computer Science to understand and reason about both natural and artificial systems and processes.”

In this edition of the conference, we are aiming to focus the educational community’s interest on this groundbreaking field of gamification-based teaching methodologies. There is a great opportunity here to share and try out strategies for improving students’ motivation and to incorporate these strategies into our daily teaching activities.
