Gamers, their networks and collective intelligence. « Seven Levels Left | Board Games News (Brought to you by ZooMania Games) | Scoop.it

The next generation is growing up in a collaborative world and are instinctual in their use of collective intelligence and networks. We have become ‘informational hunters and gatherers” (Jenkins, 2006, location 2480) and while elder generations may still be isolated in old media, the younger generations, and especially gamers, are learning to work together in a way we have never done before. Games bring people together and allow for collaboration in problem solving, a skill that many of us could benefit in practicing.

Why Did We Look The Other Way on Competition, Gamification? - Forbes | Board Games News (Brought to you by ZooMania Games) | Scoop.it
Over the past five years we've been told repeatedly that business needs more collaboration.  Over the past 18 months we've rediscovered the value of competition. Gamification is the ungainly name for its re-emergence in the social sphere.
