Gamification of Mcast
Everyday school life can be boring and stressful for every student but with some motivation, they can start to look forward to learning and interact with each other more. An element of gamification in everyday school life could be the answer.
My idea is to create an app which tracks attendance, behaviour, marks, etc. The app could also help students with lack of social skills to interact with people of the same interests in different classes.
The Academic Part
The app will consist of points that will allow the students to claim vouchers and redeem them at art shops, computer and gadget shops, or restaurants. They will gain points if:
• An assignment is finished and submitted.
• The assignments are graded. The marks correspond to how much marks are given.
• The student does an outstanding good deed.
• A student wins a contest.
Students can set up a timetable in order to be able to help themselves manage their time.
Students can also make a list in order to keep track of their assignments. They can then tick out what they have already done.
The Social Part
The students can create their own avatar in the game.
These avatars can be used to fight within a minigame where you have to fight off monsters.
5 Mcoins will be given daily to Students to be able to purchase cosmetics for the avatar.
The students can have a profile with their interests so they can help meet up with other students.
Each month the students can take part in an art contest. The winning piece will be displayed on the Mcast tower using Augmented Reality within the App.
