What are some of the benefits of using gamification? How do these benefits impact your educational practices? You’ll find out!
There are many ways to use Gamification for learning. One of the most popular is awarding points or badges for completing tasks. Other methods include assigning levels, quests, and challenges that can be completed in various ways. These approaches make it fun to learn new skills and develop new knowledge.
Examples of Gamification in eLearning
Gamification has been shown to increase motivation, engagement, self-esteem, confidence, creativity, productivity, and collaboration on projects. It’s also an excellent way to present information in a way that is more likely to be retained by students because they will want the reward (badge) at the end of their journey through your content.
Gamification of learning uses game design elements in a non-game context to engage learners inside and outside the classroom. Research shows that gamified learning can improve student engagement, motivation, and performance. Gamification provides teachers with new tools to help them teach difficult concepts while providing an engaging environment for students to learn. It also offers many opportunities for educators to collaborate with their peers around teaching best practices through open-source software development communities. Below are some ways you can incorporate Gamification into your classroom or school district:

- Implement games like Kahoot! or Quizizz as quiz.

The use of Gamification in education is a hot topic and one that we will explore in this post. It’s not hard to find evidence of the power of games for learning: think about how much you learned from playing Mario or Tetris as a child or Angry Birds today. In addition, Gamification can be used to help students learn difficult concepts such as math. So, what are some other ways that educators could incorporate game-like elements into their lesson plan?
