Gamoteca (formerly Mobilize.Life) is an application framework, authoring tool and mobile app. It was launched in 2016 with the main aim of leveraging mobile devices to simulate real-life environments for accessible and locally customisable learning games.
Developed in coordination with the United Nations and several international organisations, it was originally implemented for humanitarians to respond effectively to the increasingly complex needs of disasters through the creation of ‘serious games’ such as crisis response training and security simulation exercises.
However, Gamoteca has been used in a wide variety of contexts, ranging from humanitarian training to games on greening and sustainability for positive behavioural change, team building events and peer-to-peer learning.
Gamoteca aims to make learning technology more inclusive through the promotion of peer-to-peer learning and user-centred learning design.
