- Technologies that support enhanced teaching and learning (“technology enhanced learning”, TEL), facilitate the diversification of validation or evaluation strategies in educational institutions.
- Gamification begins with the adequate design of a specific game to achieve specific learning goals.
This study explores a learning process using the educational gamification web platform Kahoot to bolster the teaching-learning process by reinforcing previous knowledge of the Programming course in Python. A question form is implemented in the Kahoot app.
- The use of gamification tools to conduct participative individual and group activities increases class comradery, generates positive competition between participants and pushes students to correct learning difficulties that they themselves can detect.
- Previous knowledge is strengthened and built upon and students’ knowledge retention is improved.
- The gamification platform in no way replaces classroom learning, rather it functions as a classroom accompaniment and demonstrates that learning in a specific way can be carried out through a participatory environment that excites and elevates aspects of learning.
