Abstract

Socio-economically disadvantaged school-age children in developing countries, e.g., primary school students, often feel isolated and lack the opportunity to use modern technology for their educational growth. This may negatively impact their schooling through low grades and, in the worst-case, even dropping out of their classes. Gamification is the use of game design elements in non-gaming contexts. It is envisaged that using a gamified learning system can significantly impact different learners. Our aim is to conduct a case study with a Kahoot-based gamified learning system. The design of the system followed a design thinking iterative process. The test result informs us that those participants using a Kahoot-based online platform for solving primary level math quizzes and puzzles preferred the reward-based tasks in the gamified system. Our future effort is to utilize Cognitive Social Learning Theory (CSLT) that supports design instruction and the gamification of learning to deploy and implement our Kahoot-based gamified application, followed by an experimental design which will be carried out with students to measure behavioural change and learning.
