Unlocking Learning Mastery | Edutopia - 8 views

    Gamification is one response. By embedding diverse achievements into activities and assessments, learning progress can be refracted infinitely. These systems would be able to more flexibly respond to unique learner pathways and abilities, and would further serve as encouragement mechanics -- instead of one carrot stick, there are hundreds.

(After all, they did research and found that a "G" rating was a "death sentence" for a movie. That is crazy.)
