- In the rapidly evolving landscape of education, incorporating innovative and engaging teaching methods is crucial for fostering effective learning outcomes. Teacher needs to ensure that learners can cope up with classroom challenges especially in a class composed of learners with heterogeneous level of understanding for a particular subject is strenuous to handle since they have different expectations and abilities. By leveraging the power of gamification, the study aims to investigate the effectiveness of game-based learning in facilitating the acquisition and retention of critical competencies that have historically proven to be more challenging for learners. The game-based learning intervention will consist of interactive and immersive educational games specifically designed to address the identified least learned competencies. The games will be implemented as supplementary learning tools, integrated into the existing applied social sciences curriculum. Through an extensive review of existing literature and empirical evidence, the study aims to provide insights into the impact of game-based learning on enhancing skill development, critical thinking, problem-solving, teamwork, and other competencies specific to the applied social sciences domain. Hence, the findings of this study will contribute to the existing body of knowledge on game-based learning and its effectiveness in enhancing least learned competencies in applied social sciences. In addition, it will inform educators, policymakers, and curriculum developers on the potential benefits and implications of integrating game-based learning approaches within the applied social sciences domain. Ultimately, this study aims to promote more engaging and effective pedagogical strategies that foster comprehensive skill development in students, preparing them to excel in the dynamic and complex world of applied social sciences.
