I have recently been working with organizations on how the introduction of gamification into their training and development strategy plans for employee skill development.  The interesting thing as well is the application of the concepts to both hard and soft skills, that allow for returning to the results in the future as well as updating of skills as the individual progresses.

Your health plan – now with video games | Games in Education | Scoop.it

Consumers and health experts alike have long tried to make healthy choices seem more palatable by adding a dose of fun. (Think parents sneaking vegetables into their kids’ macaroni and cheese.) Now, companies are getting in on the action, using games to nudge employees in a more healthful direction.

 

Experts say such game-like health programs can be used to encourage consumers to engage in a wide range of healthy activities—everything from working out to getting flu shots.

Love this, "Interactivity (I) + Immersion (IM) = Sustained Engagement (E) resulting in meaningful learning". Agree. The more social, mobile and connect our world becomes the less appealing doing anything passive becomes.

We humans want to achieve and our digital world isn't as clear in our past ditch digging days. Digital ditches need digging too, but feedback loops are more strained and less clear.


I LOVE to gamify because to do so brings rewards systems to the front. We are all Pavlov's dogs. We salivate when the bell is rung. Our jobs as Internet marketers is to RING THE BELL. This slideshare has some useful tips for bell ringing.

A few keywords from the slides: interactive, immersive learning, sustained engagement, problem solving, challenging, feedback, active engagement. Used effectively, gaming and immersive learning in virtual worlds can be a real aid in the classroom.

Video Games Can Enhance Certain Cognitive Skills

Video Games Can Enhance Certain Cognitive Skills | Games in Education | Scoop.it

Playing video games for an hour a day can improve performance on cognitive tasks that use similar mental processes, according to a new study.

 

While previous studies have reported that action games can improve cognitive skills, the researchers say their study is the first to compare several video games and show that different skills can be improved by playing different games.

 

The researchers explain that, much like muscles that can be trained with repetitive actions, repeated use of certain cognitive processes in video games can improve performance on other tasks as well.

According to this study, researchers found that you can use specific games to improve specific skills, which can then be useful outside of the games.

In her TED talk, "Gaming Can Make a Better World," author and researcher Jane McGonigal posits that in game worlds people are "motivated to do something that matters, inspired to collaborate, to cooperate." Video games are interactive and engaging. It's no wonder they are so pervasive with both children and adults!

 

A recent trend in the business world has been to bring game world elements into the real world. This methodology is referred to as "gamification." According to a Pew Research Center report, gamification is "interactive online design that plays on people's competitive instincts and often incorporates the use of rewards to drive action -- these include virtual rewards such as points, payments, badges, discounts and free gifts; and status indicators such as friend counts, re-tweets, leaderboards, achievement data, progress bars and the ability to level up."
