Framing Play Design

Sune Gudiksen, Helle Marie Skovbjerg


Through curious mindsets and surprising features players, designer, learners, and innovators are moved to new types of perspectives, approaches, beliefs, and routines. This is considered to be a vital ingredient in the 21st century and in the coming decade because of rapid changes in school sectors and industry markets. Framing Play Design provides operational design guidelines on how to find strong balances in the making of specific play-based designs as well as how to involve users and stakeholders in the process of play design making.
