Digitalization and communication technologies have driven the information age and are causing dramatic changes to all aspects of society, including education. Assimilation of Technology into education sector, on one side challenges the existing models, opens-up new horizons on the other. The stereotype Teacher and Teaching Methods are continuously challenged to update. One of the most popular buzzword has been Gamification, which essentially focuses on motivating the pupil to learn, by using a game or gaming elements in learning environment.

Games enable moving the learning from “PASSIVE” learning to “ACTIVE learning mode which is proven to have a higher knowledge retention rate. While the conventional teaching methods have low knowledge retention rates, the average retention rates for experiential learning solutions are as high as 80% to 90%. Great philosophers like Aristotle & John Locke too professed that raised engagement and interest contributes to faster and deeper acquisition of knowledge.
