But in the make-believe world of games, we are in charge — making decisions, as we assess risk to master a range of challenges. Are games and gamification, in reality, serious learning? Get the answer and explore serious games in this special track of sessions, curated by Monica Cornetti, Gamification Master Strategist at Sententia Gamification, and Sue Bohle, Founder of Serious Play Conference.
