“Play in Education”Series:
Seminar by Press Start Hong Kong
(For practitioners related to education and parents)

Introduction |

Learning through play, game-based education, experiential learning – all buzzwords that often surface in discussions about the future of education. “Gamification” solutions are popping up on the market, to incentivize learning and school by rewarding the completion of assignments and creating “levels” for students to progress through.

But do these solutions actually make learning fun, or are they just a fancy cover for homework? How do you design a memorable experience that puts fun first – and thus attract students to actually want to learn by themselves?

Press Start Hong Kong, a game design and education consultancy, is bringing a new interpretation of both topical knowledge and soft skills development – through analog games and immersive programs. In this session, Co-Founder and Managing Partner Vince Siu will share Press Start’s player-centric, fun-first approach to game design to create experiences that inspire learners to self-driven exploration.
