Gamification is the process of using game elements in a non-game context. It has many advantages over traditional learning approaches, including: increasing learner motivation levels, improving knowledge retention, and better learner engagement through social mechanisms like badges, points, or leaderboards.
In our modern world, technology is naturally a driving force behind learning and the development of curricula. To achieve better results from learners, today’s educators are increasingly utilizing cutting-edge digital tools and strategies in their teaching methods. Gamification for learning is one of these strategies used increasingly by teachers around the world. Using gamified elements can positively impact student engagement and collaboration, allowing them to learn more efficiently as a result.
