I am an MA candidate at York University in Science and Technology Studies Graduate Program. I hold a BSc (Hons) degree in educational technology from Bogazici University in Istanbul. My research interests center around critical technology studies, game studies, gamification in education, and learning through digital games. In particular, I am interested in how digital technologies and gamification could be integrated into education. For my master’s thesis, I am conducting research on digital games designed for civic education to examine their potential benefits on the educational level. For my research, with a focus on the gamification of civic education, I analyze the relationship between the civic engagement of young adults and their experience in playing digital games designed for civic education.
