Rachele Toniolo and Stefania Varano (INAF-IRA Bologna), "Using games to engage public with astrophysics: the IRA contribution"

Recent studies made evident that effective learning can be reached only through a deep engagement with the process of knowledge construction. To do so, in the last years a lot of innovative approaches have been developed, such as game based learning (GBL) that studies how games can be used as effective tools for improving engagement with disciplines and their processes, contributing in fostering soft, life and citizenship skills.  In this talk, we will present how GBL is used by INAF researchers to engage people with astrophysics and science in general, in a very entertaining way.
