Gamification and Badgifacation
Anyways, I am now enrolled in the Webmaking 101 Challenge at P2PU. Part of this challenge will have me writing posts over here about things related to webcraft, coding, etc. This work will then be peer review and eventually, I’ll be rewarded with some cool badges to show off my newly acquired skills. As I progress I’ll also share some of my thoughts about the program, its strengths and weaknesses, and how I feel it is preparing me to eventually create some of my own interactive media.
For Further Study
If you are curious about gamification and how it can be used at home, school, or the workplace I recommend you take a look at Reality is Broken by Jane McGonigal. Jane is passionate about gaming and human behaviour and has written what is easily my favourite book on the topic. It’s entertaining, interesting and informative. Click here to get a copy.
