Adequate pedagogical approaches for integration of technology in the learning process create new opportunities for improving the quality of teaching and learning experiences, raising students’ interest and motivation for the classroom activities at the same time. Game-based learning implemented with different technologies can utilize students’ energy and enthusiasm for educational purposes. To increase the quality of experience of the learning process, elements of popular games (e.g., mobile games and augmented reality games) should be used in the educational context. This paper proposes methodological guideline that can be used for the integration of games in education. The methodological guideline defines the two steps process of creating educational games starting from students’ attitudes and needs, and then incorporates educational outcomes. As a case-study augmented reality educational games platform was designed to illustrate the possibilities and benefits of the proposed approach.
