It only takes a couple of weeks for me to shift my attention almost entirely to matters other than learning technology, so I shouldn't have much trouble retiring when the time comes. The new year is under way.

eLearning: How to Incorporate Gamification Elements

I Came, I Saw, I Learned

One option is to think like a video game developer. by AJ George  If you happened to catch my earlier article on the  gamification of learning , then you know that I have been dubious about its effectiveness. To be clear, it's not the premise of having fun in learning that I feel we should be wary of. It's the tendency to turn everything into a competition based more on winning than on learning. guess you could say I don't mind using a few tricks from gamers; it's the actual games that have me worried. Stories, Yes. Bullets, No! Make your learning contextual.
