Are You Using Gaming for Learning?
Social gaming website Gamify.com lists 24 different game mechanics or constructs of rules and feedback that create good gameplay. According to the site, these building blocks can be applied and combined to gamify any non-game content. A simple game such as “Jeopardy” uses several game mechanics such as leveling with increasing difficulty of questions, points accumulated for appropriately answering questions and countdown for task accomplishment within a timeframe. A robust learning simulation will use game mechanics such as combos for practicing multiple skills simultaneously, quests where a learner completes a series of challenges, and discovery where a design element enables learners to discover information as they progress through the simulation.
