  • Hello,

    There is considerable potential in the use of location-based games to raise awareness about cultural heritage. However, this form of serious game can be challenging to develop, given everything that must be considered to create experiences that encourage meaningful learning. This work reviews design practices and considerations identified in the literature as well as those we have found that contribute to favorable learning outcomes.

    Intended to open a dialogue among those who have participated in this type of gameplay, developed these games, have experimented with mobile technology and augmented reality, and/or are interested in learning more, please consider sharing your experiences and lessons learned.

    Feel free to reach out to us directly.

    Thank you.
