Talking Games and Gamification (for Learning) with Karl Kapp

On Thursday, I wrote about a way that BINGO could be used as an engagement tool during learning programs (and shared this free, cool BINGO card generator).

As part of that post, I shared a downloadable BINGO card you can use to follow along with today’s podcast (or just skim the transcript below) and play along at home. The first five folks who send me a completed BINGO card, marking off the 5 concepts that Karl and I actually spoke about in the podcast, will earn themselves a $10 Starbucks card (my email address is [email protected]).

“But Brian, there are eight concepts on this BINGO card!”

That’s a very good observation. Karl and I only spoke about five of these. That’s what makes this challenge worthwhile!

Without further ado, I present to you this week’s episode of Train Like You Listen featuring games and gamification expert Karl Kapp, who offers some insights on the differences between games and gamification, suggests that a game need not be “fun” in order for learning to take place, and shares his preference on competitive vs. cooperative games.
