Gamification, Meet Gamefulness

Gamification, Meet Gamefulness | Learning design | Scoop.it
On the face of it, the term “gamification” would seem to imply a digital game. But the similarities between “games” and “gamification” end at points, levels, and badges.
Tanya Lau's insight:

Thought provoking post and commentary proposing a distinction b/t 'gamification' which author Ben Betts defines as largely utilising mechanisms that manipulate / condition behaviour vs 'gamefulness' - incorporating the playfulness of games into the design of an experience (role play, story, agency...).

I think I agree with Karl Kapp's comments that gamification can incorporate all of the elements of story, challenge, etc that Betts refers to as 'gamefulness'. Perhaps part of the problem though is that gamification is now commonly used to refer to experiences that use points, badges and leaderboards.

Tanya Lau's insight:

This was an interesting foil to Clive Shepherd's post on designing compliance elearning - looking at it from this perspective perhaps part of the reason that a lot of 'big stick' compliance training doesn't result in behaviour change is that it comes from a place of distrust rather than trust in employees to do the right thing.

Within the world of education and training we remain curiously reluctant to confront institutionalised structures and assumptions even when we now know they are not the most effective ways to support learning.
Tanya Lau's insight:

Think multi event campaign rather than single event course to embed learning - small pieces of learning spread over a period of time.

Perhaps could also make increasingly challenging?

Using Spaced Learning and Distributed Practice in Corporate Learning

Using Spaced Learning and Distributed Practice in Corporate Learning | Learning design | Scoop.it
Students are often told to study for a few minutes a day, every day, instead of cramming for a test. Musicians know that consistent, daily practice is the only way to learn a challenging piece.
Tanya Lau's insight:

Reinforcing learning and practice over a period of time rather than learning as a single event. Also touches on the importance of internal marketing to make this approach successful.
