Building a camaraderie of global citizens through interactive tech and game-based learning

Using interactive technology and gamified learning is important in today's digital age to keep students engaged and motivated. It helps to create an optimal environment for students to thrive in. Generation Global's student gamified platform, the Ultimate Dialogue Adventure, is one such platform where we connect young people (13-17) from around the world to learn, interact, and dialogue with their global peers on important global issues. In the process, young people gain confidence, global connections and develop skills such as critical thinking, questioning, active listening, global communication, and reflection. This talk will provide participants with a better understanding of how technology can help personalise the learning experience, support active learning, and foster dialogue skills, as well as knowledge on Generation Global tools and platforms that use game-based learning to promote empathy, cultural competency, and global awareness among young people.
