There’s a right way and a wrong way to gamify learning

Axonify

Gamification has been a hot buzzword in the learning space for awhile. All kinds of learning tech—from the LMS to the simple mobile apps—all claim to incorporate gamification.

Kapp Notes

Challenge : As the game-based learning expert James Paul Gee has said, good games give players a set of challenging problems and let them solve those problems until they can do it automatically. They must learn something new and integrate into their old mastery.
