Games, Technology and Concepts: resources we use for teaching and learning anthropology [IUAES Commission on Anthropology and Education]


Location: Poznań, Poland
Date: 28 Aug 11:00 - 12:45


Room 2.4

We invite participants to showcase resources used to teach and learn anthropology. This panel provides a hands-on complement to the ‘Teaching and Learning’ panel from the IUAES Commission on Anthropology and Education. Rather than traditional paper proposals, our vision is to show, tell and discuss games, technology and concepts which are used around the world to teach anthropology courses and ideas (and to teach anthropologically). In additional to contributing to a visual showcase of resources from around the world, we invite presenters to explore why and how particular teaching and learning resources work (or don’t work) in particular contexts. What role do physical games, video games, websites, films, role-play activities, podcasts and items of material culture play in anthropology education? What types of resources help build anthropological ways of thinking? What creative ways are there to engage students? How have anthropology teaching and learning resources changed over the last fifty years? How might resources change in the next fifty years? What role can technology play in the teaching and learning of anthropology? What makes learning memorable and how can we take students’ interests and preferences into account? By bringing resources together from around the world we will consider how to select and adapt resources for particular local contexts. It’s a chance to explore creative possibilities for learners and teachers to engage with anthropology.

In my paper I approach gamification as a viable alternative to other ways of teaching Anthropology. After more than a decade of teaching Cultural Anthropology, I argue that serious games offer the possibility to immerse oneself in a virtual heterotopia that is attractive because it can easily be personalized for one's learning needs. Moreover, gamification entails an abandonment of the sharp disti ... More
