Sánchez-Carmona, Adrián; Robles, Sergi; Pons, Jordi – Journal of Technology and Science Education, 2017
The students' lack of motivation is a usual problem. The students value more the obtention of the degree than the developing of competences and skills. In order to fight this, we developed a gamification's experience based on merits and leaderboards. The merits are linked to the attainment of skills and competences that students usually do not…

Borrego, Carlos; Fernández, Cristina; Blanes, Ian; Robles, Sergi – Journal of Technology and Science Education, 2017
Real-life room-escape games are ludic activities in which participants enter a room in order to get out of it only after solving some riddles. In this paper, we explain a Room Escape teaching experience developed in the Engineering School at Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. The goal of this activity is to increase student's motivation and to…
