“Gamification” is the use of design techniques from games in other areas, like education.
This is just a very short beginning list, and I hope that readers will contribute more. I’ll start with three posts from this blog, and then add others:
Can Incentives Make Students Secretly Hate Us? is by Justin Reich at Education Week.
More than a just digital star chart for learners is by Graham Stanley.
Games: More than Just Reward Systems is from Justin Reich at Education Week.
Gamification: does it make business more fun, or is it just exploitationware? is from The New Statesman.
Feedback is welcome.
