The GDR Mémoire stands for “Groupement De Recherche sur la Mémoire”. It is a grouping of hundreds of researchers who share the same scientific interest in memory.
“The aim of the GDR Mémoire interdisciplinary colloquium is to build a genuine transdisciplinarity around the theme of memory.”
The idea is to come and present research work in the field of memory, to be able to exchange ideas between researchers, and to envisage new collaborations!
For Babaoo, it was also a golden opportunity to promote and test the game with memory specialists. We were thus able to gather their first impressions and suggestions for improvement both in terms of the game’s ergonomics and the scientific aspect of the content.
Metacognition in a video game, they’d never seen anything like it! And it has to be said that they were immediately thrilled. 🤩
Babaoo was selected to organise one of the 10 symposia at this conference. Our symposium targeted education and metacognition more specifically and featured key players from the scientific and clinical world of Metacognition.
Equipped with tablets, our team also offered attendees the chance to test the Beta version of our neuro-educational game as a preview… just a few weeks before its release on the stores.
On the programme: Various Keynotes including “Mathematical applications to learning processes”, 10 symposia around memory (Perception and memory of time, Memory and pain, Memory and Justice, Interactions between memories and emotions, …), and “poster sessions” allowing researchers and Psychology Masters students to come and present their current research work. Between the conferences, the researchers were able to test Babaoo.
What is the connection with our game? The desire to advance science and better understand the mechanisms involved in memory processes, in order to advance the field!
Thank you to the GDR Mémoire scientific committee for selecting us for this second edition, and to all the researchers present for the warm welcome they gave Babaoo.
We look forward to showing Babaoo to the public!
