Can All Kinds of Learning Be Gamified?

Gamification Learning: A New Experiential Learning That is Fun and Engaging

Having a learning that is also fun and highly engaging would be a life-changing innovation. As a matter of fact, we already have it in the form of gamification learning. With the rising trend of this type of learning, it raises another question. Can all kinds of learning be gamified?

Theoretically, every kind of learning can be gamified. However, some subjects or skills may benefit more from it compared to others, especially those that require high motivation, engagement, and reinforcement to learn. Gamification learning tends to work better if it provides clear learning objectives, manageable challenges, a healthy level of competition, immediate feedback to the players, and allows players to track and analyze their progress.

On the other side, gamification can be a challenge to develop and the unfamiliar nature may lead to some trainees experiencing a steep learning curve in the early part of the learning. So, while it might have worked on some, gamification might not be the best option for learning that demands a deep understanding of a concept and high empowerment capabilities.
