The Free eBook: How Gamification Reshapes Learning
Dedicated Learning Professionals and Educators across the globe were, until recently, desperately seeking for ways, methods, and techniques to engage employees and students in the learning process. Surprisingly enough, no one would think that games was the answer. After all, games tend to increase learners’ natural desire for competition, goal achievement, and genuine self-expression, while they also promote interactivity, have rules, a quantifiable outcome, and can be colorful, appealing, and extremely realistic.
Gamification is the use of game thinking and mechanics in a non-game context to inspire employees and students to get engaged in the learning process. The word itself was launched in 2002 by Nick Pelling, a British IT expert, but wasn’t widely used until 2010. Based on extended research conducted by numerous educational institutions, what makes games effective for learning is the learners’ level of activity, motivation, interactivity and engagement. This increases their fluid and crystallized intelligence, something that by definition optimizes learning.
