Gamification is more than a trend—educators in all domains are realizing the power of games to engage learners. By making training more stimulating, gamification ratchets up knowledge transfer and retention while securing the buy-in that is so often difficult to get from trainees.
Such a wealth of knowledge has been amassed about gamification in the past few years that it’s hard to get a handle on it. And if you’re just starting to incorporate gamification into your instructional design, it may seem overwhelming. That’s what makes this Edtech Gamification Infographics resource so valuable. From facts about gamification to corporate trends in gamification to roadmaps for incorporating gamification and much, much more, this infographic is a handy and persuasive resource, whether you’re evaluating your current training or pitching new training to your stakeholders.
A good supplement to infographics is the Gamification Knowledge Check we profiled earlier this month. This downloadable white paper is available to eLearning Guild members (Member (free), Member-Plus, or Premium). It’s a great tool for assessing your gamification knowledge base, and it can work hand-in-hand with infographics.
If you or your stakeholders tend to be more visual, infographics may “pop” more, whereas the Gamification Knowledge Check may speak to those who process in more verbal terms. Together, these resources can be a one-two punch.
