Hi everyone, my IRL is Lorenzo and I'm from the Italian part of Switzerland, around the web and in games you can find me as oralion! I'm currently writing my master thesis about gamification, learning and everyday life... This is my first MOOC but I'm really fascinated by the idea!
A bit about me... I'm an "intense gamer" I love to play, and I can be quite competitive. I was DM for D&D. Lately I had to reduce the "intensity" of the gaming due to IRL things (like work, feeding, studying...)
I'm specialized in Adult Education, Experiential/Reflective Learning, Assessment and Game Based Learning. I've written a thesis and some articles about the impact of flow on experiential learning with digital games, and book about Video games and Families .
I work as a Media Educator with K12+, as a Trainer for Teacher (mostly about Game Basel Learning and Experiential/Reflective Learning), and as an HR consultant...
As you can imagine my time zone is a bit shifted from USA but I'll catch the videos and try to participate to talks/meting asynchronously.
For now congratulation for the idea and the organization!!
