Moderator Tom Petro and guests discuss gamification. Questions Tom asks include:

  • What is gamification exactly? 
  • Did gamification just spring fully formed from the ground, or has it been around for a while?
  • Why is gamification a valuable (or effective) technique in learning and development? 
  • Are games and gamification the same thing? 
  • If gamification for everyone or just Generation X?
  • Is gamification just an e-learning thing, or can it be used in an in-person setting?
  • What are some good applications for gamification techniques in learning and performance support?
