The video-games industry is not only big - it’s also massively influential: creating a new generation whose expectations lean towards interactivity rather than the consumption of broadcast messages.
Beyond Nudge Theory, technological entrepreneurs have become adept at finding new ways of motivating people, not only managing to change their behaviours but also encouraging them to develop skills, mentor others and solve problems.
What can politicians learn from the most successful interactive-content industry the planet has known?
Jude is one of the original thought leaders on games for learning and has been working in the gaming space for 9 years. She has worked with large corporate, government bodies globally and educational institutions on pre production, production and post production of games for learning. Jude founded PlayMob to create world changing, meaningful games across sectors, to show the potential and power of games for change.
The Translation Layer
We often ask politicians to embrace innovative ideas from the worlds of social media or gaming and use them to solve long-standing problems.
Never before have we faced a position where so many key concepts are not fully understood by policy makers and their stakeholders. They’re tough concepts to grasp if you don’t work in these industries. A Translation Layer is needed. Applying these solutions to the obvious problems with policymaking can help improve an understanding of the wider opportunities presented by innovation.
