Simple rules, complex behaviours: gamification and learning | Ben Betts is... | Young Adult and Children's Stories | Scoop.it
One of the most common criticisms I see of Gamification for learning is its simplistic, behavioural approach when what we really need to foster is more complex, creative knowledge creation. Increasingly, I don't see a conflict.

Topic for the 9/16 #storyappchat: Funding Your App With Kickstarter

Topic for the 9/16 #storyappchat: Funding Your App With Kickstarter | Young Adult and Children's Stories | Scoop.it

If you’ve done any reading of technology news over the past year, you’ve probably heard of Kickstarter. This is a website that allows anyone to find funding for an upcoming project via crowdsourcing. Basically you enter the details of your project and come up with some creative incentives to give people who donate to your project. Enter a deadline and voilá: the money comes rolling in, via your friends, their friends, and others who fall in love with your project through SEO. Hooray!

 

Well, maybe. There are some of us within the #storyappchat community who’ve tried Kickstarter and didn’t reach full funding (Touchoo is one example). But that doesn’t mean the endeavor wasn’t a success. Writer/illustrator Will Terrytried his own Kickstarter campaign for a storybook app idea, and shared his experiences on his blog.

 

There are many reasons why you might want to consider Kickstarter for your next project. Join us as we welcome digital marketing expert Julie Brannon, who has had some recent success with Kickstarter and will lead our discussion for the next #storyappchat this Sunday, September 16 at 9:00 p.m. Eastern/6:00 p.m. Pacific. Looking forward to seeing YOU there–just start tweeting using the #storyappchat hashtag to participate!
