A Clear Explanation of Gamification

Gamification is one of the trendy words in education right now. In most education conference programs I find at least a couple of workshops or presentations about gamification. You’ve probably seen those too. What is gamification? Common Craft’s latest video explains gamification in clear and concise terms.

Gamification is something that I had to experience first-hand in order to really understand why it appeals to so many students and teachers. I experienced it when I started using the Strava app to track my bike rides. Once I started using it, I realized why kids like digital badges. More of that story is found in my post, What Strava Taught Me About Why Kids Love ClassDojo and Digital Badges.
