Superpoderes contra el Dr. Discriminador. La mejora de la evaluación continua mediante la ludificación en el Máster en profesorado

Resumen

La ludificación, esto es, motivar a las personas con las mecánicas de los juegos para que se involucren y participen con la finalidad de conseguir mejores resultados, también ha sido utilizada en contextos de Educación Superior. Con el objetivo de motivar la asistencia, la participación y la realización de las tareas de la evaluación continua en una asignatura del máster en profesorado, se implementó una dinámica de obtención de insignias ambientada en la consecución de superpoderes para luchar contra el Dr. Discriminador. La evaluación de los resultados se hizo mediante el análisis de las respuestas recogidas a través de un cuestionario y la comparación de los datos de asistencia y participación con los de cursos anteriores. Los resultados demuestran que, además de ser del agrado de los estudiantes, supuso un incentivo para realizar las actividades de evaluación continua.
