DUNGEONS & SOILS: The journey through the content of Physical Indexes




Professional and technological education, Game, Ludic, Soil mechanics


This article is a suggestion of gamified practice, derived from previous articles which explored the difficulties of students with the content of Physical Indexes, the history of games, gamification as a methodological alternative and the elaboration of a script for the creation of games. Thus, with the bibliographic reference previously explored, it culminated in a methodology for the application of the content through a gamified practice. In this way, the methodology used was the use of a script for the creation of games, followed by the creation of a script for the application of gamified practices in which qualitative research was used through the use of forms and interpretation of the players' speeches, to arrive at discussions of such a gamified practice. Due to the pandemic, the game was adapted for use in part online. The results and discussions discuss the creative processes that guided the creation of the game (pedagogical need, type of game, genre, levels, goal, dynamics, mechanics, elements, scoring and rewards) and the report of its application within the teaching process and learning with the alternatives created for the distance model and its application, in part, in person. After the application, the players' responses are collected, and a discussion of the results is held. In the end, the conclusions showed the potential of gamified practice, as a complement to traditional classes, motivating and engaging students in an alternative and playful way, motivating students to want to learn.
