"Juho Hamari and Jonna Koivisto of the University of Tampere in Finland have studied gamification extensively, and they've found that some students simply dislike competition.

Bloom's Taxonomy is something all teachers should be cognizant about because each child learns different. In the same regards, each gaming style is meant for a different purpose. Gamification's incentive is moving up the ranks. Game-based gaming teachers the user something as they play-- such as http://studyisland.com.
