Gamification: The term is used to describe motivation and engagement in students using gaming elements in education.
There are many ways in which game design and technology have been implemented into the classroom. From card games to board games, and even video games, studying is more fun when the environment is adapted to the way we learn best.
Firstly, let’s understand what Gamification is.
Gamification is a process of adding games like mechanics or game design elements to other non-game environments in order to make them more playful and engaging.
Game mechanics applied to non-games usually involves elements of levels, points, rules, rewards, the use of strategies, interaction with the environment, user-generated content etc.
Understanding how can Gamification be used in everyday life?
Gamification is a recent concept in which a system is designed in such a way that it fulfills the same function as a game. Thus, it is used as a tool to drive behaviour. The idea is derived from the psychological concept of rewards, which is a positive reinforcer of certain behaviour. The rewards can be actual or virtual, but the purpose is to keep people excited and motivated towards a particular activity.
