Infographic: The Evolution of Gamification

Infographic: The Evolution of Gamification | Differentiated and ict Instruction | Scoop.it

Gamification is the application of game principles to something that is not necessarily a game and this should not be confused with serious games. The goal of serious games is to train or teach somebody something.

Γιώργος Παπαναστασίου's insight:

Πόσο δίκιο έχει. Αλλά πώς θα ...βγει η ύλη; είναι το ερώτημα των περισσοτέρων από εμάς όταν φτάσουμε στο σημείο να αποφασίσουμε, να κάνουμε τη μετάβαση από τον "μαύρο"πίνακα, στον προτζέκτορα και τον Η/Υ.

Χρειάζεται χρόνος για την ουσιαστική μετάβαση και να απαγκιστρωθούμε από το "σχολικό εγχειρίδιο". Τότε οι δυνατότητές  μας θα είναι απεριόριστες.
