During 4th Balkan Museum Network Conference in Shkodra, Albania – we made a special workshop for museum professionals about gamification techniques that can be used in presentation of museum collections.
The learning objective of the session “Gamification Of Storytelling” was to demonstrate to museum and culture professionals that the pillars of game design could be applied to daily activities without heavy equipment or technology. The key themes covered during the session were: the basics of game design and gamification, introduction of the new principle “Meaningful play” that the lecturers have used in different projects, practical examples of possible games following the mentioned principle. Our goal was to “pull in” the participants of the session into the game itself. This model resulted with smiling faces of the participants who were having fun while gaining a real understanding of gaming and its infinite possibilities in the museum world
