Questo articolo condiviso da Online Unversities, sito che raccoglie i migliori contenuti sull'educazione online, illustra i principali limiti che incontra l'idea di gamification dell'educazione.

Partendo dalle osservazioni di Elizabeth Sampat (game designer), che spiega come  la gamification non possa essere considerata la mera applicazione di principi standard e meccaniche in contesti che non riflettono in alcun modo i giochi, l'articolo fornisce dei punti salienti su cui riflettere per comprendere che perché l'idea di gamification possa essere straordinaria oltre l'aspetto teorico, vi sono ancora importanti passi da affrontare.

Valeria&Giorgia's curator insight, March 9, 2014 12:27 PM

La compagnia Knewton, che si occupa di apprendimento attraverso le tecnologie, ha proposto un'interessante infografica che prova a dare un'interpretazione di come si può portare in classe un'esperienza che sia realmente ricca di significato attraverso il gioco. La filosofia di questa compagnia parte dalla convinzione che ogni individuo sia unico e abbia necessità differenti, per questo parlano di "adaptive learning". La tecnologia aiuta, secondo la compagnia, a capire "cosa funzioni per chi": ogni studente avrebbe bisogno di tecniche di insegnamento personalizzate. Interessante il video di un intervento in cui Jesse Schell, importante game designer, spiega come e perché usare i giochi nell'insegnamento. La base del ragionamento è il fatto che il progresso stesso abbia portato non solo innovazione, ma come all'interno di un decorso naturale anche bellezza, personalizzazione e tendenza alla condivisione: tutte cose che mancano ancora alla scuola di oggi.
