Gamification of Learning: Your Roadmap to Learning Motivation

Imagine being tossed off a plane from an altitude of 40,000 feet. No parachute. No Jumpsuit. Just you, plummeting over 50 feet per second as a four-minute timer counts down. To survive, you must answer a few questions correctly. A right answer stabilizes your course, and a wrong one accelerates your fall. By the time you approach your final question, you only have seven seconds for the last one. As soon as it arrives, you respond in a blink. A pair of wings pop out of your back, and you fly away as the magic words YOU WON explode on your screen. Once the game is over, the excitement fades away—but the mistakes you made and the feedback you gained remain etched in your mind. By the time you resume work, you've already learned your lesson without the pain of a boring lecture. You probably don't even think about how much you were emotionally connected to your avatar on the screen. Isn't this how we want our learning programs to work? Be it mastering a machine, managing a team, or even handling an angry customer, we want our people to be ready for the challenge. Our traditional learning programs don't always live up to that challenge. So, when the stakes are high, we wish we had a tool or a trick to work the charm for us. And gamification happens to be both.
