Tour Stops for Week Two of Gamification of Learning and Instruction Tour

Kapp Notes

TODAY’S STOP: Clark Quinn Learnlets. Clark is not necessarily a fan of the term “Gamification” and provides some powerful reasons why in his post. And his suggestion of “Beyond Gamification” would have been a really good title. This week promises to be an exciting second week of the Gamification Blog Book Tour. Here are the stops for this week. April 23: Clark Quinn Learnlets. April 24: Karl Grieb ASTD Philadelphia Chapter.

This caught my attention because I'm a great believer in and keen user of this approach. My experience has been extremely positive and I'm sure I'm not the only one.

If you are attending the ASTD International Conference in Denver May 6-9, download and start populating the ASTD Events app - Android or iOS (iPhone/iPAD) available. You don't have to carry around a paper schedule! Only drawback I see is I loaded the app on both my iPhone and iPAD and it looks like they don't sync up.
