Gamified learning is a teaching methodology that creates a game-like scenario around the course curriculum and the objectives of the course.
Backed by research – A 2014 meta-analysis of numerous studies comparing digital game learning to non-game conditions showed that games significantly enhance student learning. Furthermore, high-quality, learning-oriented design contributes to results. Gaming also actively fosters social and thinking skills. The 2014 paper demonstrated that both collaborative and competitive gaming leads to better results than independent study.
