Learning requires a much deeper engagement than can in my opinion be achieved with gamification techniques.

The 13 most innovative schools in the world

The 13 most innovative schools in the world | Digital Learning | Scoop.it

It can be a floating school in an impoverished region, like the one in Lagos, Nigeria. Or it can be a school that's blind to gender, like Egalia, in Stockholm, Sweden.

They cater for groups, individuals, and even free, open, massive communities. They personalize the learning experience for student clients, earn a living, and pay it forward through helping others.
