Description & Coverage
Description:

Serious games provide a unique opportunity to engage students more fully than traditional teaching approaches. Understanding the best way to utilize games and play in an educational setting is imperative for effectual learning in the twenty-first century.

Gamification: Concepts, Methodologies, Tools, and Applications investigates the use of games in education, both inside and outside of the classroom, and how this field once thought to be detrimental to student learning can be used to augment more formal models. This four-volume reference work is a premier source for educators, administrators, software designers, and all stakeholders in all levels of education.

  • Assessment Integration
  • Creative Interfaces
  • Digital Games Development
  • Gamification
  • Learning Through Play

Reviews and Testimonials

Gamification: Concepts, Methodologies, Tools, and Applications shows that gamification is here to stay. Its practitioners are upping their own game and measuring ever-finer points about the effects of various gamification strategies. This collection is aimed foremost at those who would design and deploy gamification for learning and for those who would use other-designed or off-the-shelf games for teaching.
