Melissa Miller analyses the gamification of learning process and its influence and consequences in modern education.
Education game designers can innovate for a brighter future
Unlike with traditional learning techniques, there’s no end to the possibilities of educational gaming. A gamified learning app can be as imaginative and engaging as the developer wants it to be, the only limit being the imaginations of the designers. Students can now interact with learning materials in a more immersive experience than ever before. The classic school textbook can now be supplemented with educational games designed to enhance and deepen a student’s understanding of a subject on a level never thought possible. In other words, it’s a good time to be a student right now.
