I was looking for ideas for my next blog post and happen to end up here. Great background study! I just realized myself that gamification can be used to motivate students and I was so excited about that. I had to write a blog post of my own so I could help others discover that as well (http://www.cloudriven.fi/en/blog/what-motivates-to-learn/). Now all we need to do is gamify our courses and motivate learners!

I must say some really good insights! Thanks for sharing it. I also happen to chance upon an interesting webinar coming up by Ross Smith, Director of Test Microsoft Skype Division on 12th September. Ross will be speaking about ‘Where do serious games make the most sense?’. You might want to be a part of it. Here is the link to register for the session https://www1.gotomeeting.com/register/613153649

Funny - I was just working on my book Actionable Gamification - Beyond Points, Badges, and Leaderboards when I saw this article.

I think you've done some great research here. One of the things that are good to look at is Octalysis (http://bit.ly/octalysis) as well as the more specialized player types by Andrzej Marczewski.

Also, consider checking out my post Top 10 Education Gamification Examples that will Change our Future: http://www.yukaichou.com/gamification-examples/top-10-education-gamifica...

Keep up the amazing work!

Love the relation to Bartle's player types, Matthew. This line really gave us a kick too, "In short, when gamifying, don't forget that it is supposed to be fun!"

If anyone is seeking a gamified math learning experience, much like the fun ideas listed in this article, we'd love for you to take a free 21-day trial of our 3rd-8th grade game-based learning math content at www.wowzers.com/trial

Addictions of any kind may be linked to outside sources. For further insight, Dr. James Paul Gee offers his perspective in a PBS interview. Here's the transcript: http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/digitalnation/extras/interviews/...

Surely, we should consider games as a great tool to get pupils interested in subject. Using games in school can be a hugely rewarding experience for children. They can learn a great deal about strategy, logic, effective communication with others and it can help their literacy and numeracy. But on some children it might have an adverse effect, therefore we should not forget about enjoyable alternative activity and offer it to children and teens. Here some links http://quib.ly/qu/are-games-addictive to websites which advice which games are suitable for different age group, reviews of current popular video and online games, etc.
