Abstract: It is known that in recent years teachers are increasingly dealing with the problem of a lack of student interest and motivation for STEM subjects. This problem was noticed in the case of children with typical development, as well as in the case of children with learning difficulties and physical impairment. This paper reports on the results obtained as a result of the implementation of the GAM LAB Large Scale Pilot, as part of the European Horizon 2020 NEWTON Project, with emphasis on the impact that Gamification and virtual reality (VR) can have on the learning motivation and on the affective state of the students with hearing impairments. The study sample includes 40 students with hearing impairments from the Special Vocational School for students with hearing impairments ”Sfânta Maria” in Bucharest. We have evaluated the level of motivation as well as the increase of the affective state before and after the implementation of the pilot. The results obtained have demonstrated significant impact amongst this group of students both in terms of motivation as well as affective state.
