Gamification – Tasty Resources!

Gamification has proven it’s here to stay, with new approaches, methods and technologies cropping up constantly. With so much change and so much choice, it’s sometimes difficult to know where to invest your efforts.

Karl Kapp and Sivasailam "Thiagi" Thiagarajan, two of the preeminent thinkers in gamification, liken the array of choices to a smorgasbord or buffet. And as anyone who’s lingered too long at an all-you-can-eat luncheon knows, there’s such a thing as going overboard.

Vignettes Learning architect Ray Jiminez reflects on this dilemma in this helpful post, How to Combine Gamification with Stories and Micro-Learning, including tools and insights on the suitability of micro-lessons for gamification as opposed to “long and tedious” gaming activities. Think power lunch as rather than marathon foodfest – Jiminez explains how bite-sized learning is tastier for the brain. Check it out!
