Book Review: ‘The Gamification of Learning and Instruction: Game-Based Methods and Strategies For Training And Education’ by Karl Kapp

Posted on 24 May 2012 by jrobes

Das Buch macht gerade die Runde. Und es passt hervorragend zur aktuellen Themenwoche des opco12, “Game-based Learning”. Die Besprechung von Connie Malamed gibt einen guten Überblick über Aufbau und Inhalte des Werkes. Leider fehlte wohl dann die Luft für eine kurze Einordnung in die Literatur zum Thema.

“You have five seconds to answer this question. Does gamification always involve leaderboards and points? If you answered in the negative, you win this round. Gamification is a mindset, a learning strategy and a movement all rolled into one. As Kapp explains it, “Gamification is using game-based mechanics, aesthetics and game thinking to engage people, motivate action, promote learning, and solve problems.”
