Games are about rewards. Why not learning?

So, before you go and say that games in learning or gamification in learning isn’t for adults, let me just remind you that every age enjoys playing games. My Great Aunt Flo taught me how to play Spite and Malice, a card game she regularly played with her friends until she was well into her 80’s. Most of us can’t even afford to buy a video game player until we’re into adulthood and have a steady job. So, the question of whether or not adults like to play games is settled.

Now that I’ve put this into your head, take some time to read this fabulous article in The Huffington Post. There’s also a short video! Print it out. Read it every now and again to remind yourself that learning should be fun and more like playing games!
