In the context of Geo-C program, Geotec is organizing a geogames seminar for the next week (23 and 24). The seminar will take place in ESPAITEC II, Sala multiusos, 2nd floor (http://smart.uji.es/index.php?room=UB1206SM). And it will be taught by Christoph Schlieder and Thomas Heinz from the Research Group on Computing in the Cultural Sciences, University of Bamberg, Germany (http://www.geogames-team.org/).
Geogames are location-based games which differ in many respects from classical console games. Most importantly, they use the geographic position of the players as a central element of the game mechanics which is why they can be employed as effective spatial gamification tools. Geogames induce their players to physically visit places which they otherwise would not visit and to engage in place-related activities which they otherwise would not engage in. The workshop combines a geogame design course on the first day with a geogame programming lab on the second day. Although the two parts complement each other, some participants may choose to attend only one.
