What the Heck is... Gamification?

What the Heck is... Gamification? | Creative Writing | Scoop.it

In simple terms, gamification means applying some of the features we enjoy in video games to businesses, or indeed to any non-game-related area. The rationale is that people love playing games; they lose themselves in them for hours on end.So what makes games so appealing and how could we use this for business? What games offer people, and many real world situations don’t, is this intense competitive environment with constant challenges of trying to move to a new level and complete the next mission, where players get instant feedback, reward, collect points and badges, move up rankings, and see their status increase.

How to Disappear from the Internet [INFOGRAPHIC]

How to Disappear from the Internet [INFOGRAPHIC] | Creative Writing | Scoop.it

The amount of information available online has gotten out of hand. Everything about our lives, from where where we went to high school and what we ate for breakfast this morning, can be found on the internet. If you think that's bad, think about children growing up today – their entire lives, from infancy through middle school, are being documented by their parents on Facebook!

Privacy just doesn't exist online anymore; it can take drastic measures to delete ourselves from the internet, but here's a step-by-step guide for those who want to do so...

The more people reveal themselves on social media platforms, the more they will ultimately want to block others from seeing those interactions at some point. People do not want a permanent record of every tweet, status update or picture ever posted and they definitely don't want people who shouldn't be looking at them to look at them. But as this little infographic shows, it is very hard to get off the grid once you are ensnarled.

How to Train Your Mind to Think Critically and Form Your Own Opinions

How to Train Your Mind to Think Critically and Form Your Own Opinions | Creative Writing | Scoop.it
"Critical Thinking" may sound like an obnoxious buzzword from liberal arts schools, but it's actually a useful skill. Critical thinking just means absorbing important information and using that to form a decision or opinion of your own--rather than just spouting off what you hear others say. This doesn't always come naturally to us, but luckily, it's something you can train yourself to do better.

 

Critical thinking doesn't end. The more knowledge you cultivate, the better you'll become at thinking about it. It's navel gazing in that you're constantly thinking about thinking, but the end result is a brain that automatically forms better arguments, focused ideas, and creative solutions to problems.

"Navel gazing." I haven't heard that term in ages ... and don't do it near enough.

 

Todd Bratcher's curator insight, February 18, 2014 6:46 PM

Critical thinking means to ask questions that need to be asked. it involves finding the significance in every piece of information you come across and formulating opinions and plans of action. You have to ask the tough questions and the best one to start with is "Why?" Critical thinking is about being curious and allowing your sense of curiosity to follow the "why".Often times following the why will lead to finding the truths and finding lies. Critical thinking is also about honing in ones BS detector. Take time to analyze information before accepting it's credibility.

Social Media is an excellent resource for branding....and it's free.

Alex Ellsworth's curator insight, July 3, 2015 7:15 AM

This infographic shows that the most preferred way for consumers to get updates about a brand is through short updates via platforms like Facebook and Twitter. Naturally, people who are more involved on these platforms mention brands more in their own updates, and share things about brands. Because of this, brands have a huge opportunity to gain more buyers. By using a profile of someone who "likes" a brand, they can view what else they like, and target people who have similar interests. Not surprisingly, the thing most people like to see via their favorite brands on social networks is coupons and discounts. I think it would be helpful for brands to somehow construct a sort of virtual "punch card" for incentive; sharing something, referring likes, engaging with customer service, etc would give the customer a unique code for, say, 5-10% off their next purchase. This way, you are building a unique space on the internet, an interactive place where customers will want to return.
