Preparing All Students for Success in College and Career

Gamification Guide 

What is Gamification?  
It refers to service design aiming to provide game-like experiences. In practice gamification commonly applies to non-game applications and processes. Gamification's proponents argue that it works by making technology more engaging, by encouraging users to engage in desired behaviors, by showing a path to mastery and autonomy, by helping to solve problems and being more engaging, and by taking advantage of humans' psychological predisposition to engage in gaming.
