‘Gamification’ Is Dead, Long Live Games For Learning

Even though I am a proponent of badges, leaderboards, storylines, etc., this is still a good and thought provoking piece on gamification. Especially like these chapters:

“Rather than looking at “gamification of learning” as a process that’s applied to curricula to make school more interesting, we should recognize that learning at its best already has game-like elements that are latent and waiting to be unlocked.

Great teachers already bring to the classroom that kind of interactive, discovery-based learning that works so well, and for their students learning already starts to look an awful lot like a game.”
