Funder:   Employment Ontario, OJCP project
   
Annotation:  

Gamification, a technique based in part on introducing game play elements to non-game settings, is becoming a key technique used to engage learners in their education. Through Literacy Link South Central’s recent Job Creation Partnership project, a study of the history, impact and execution of gamification principles in adult education was completed, and we’re pleased to share several resources with you as a result. Resources include:

  • Gamification and Adult Literacy – a full report outlining the use of gamification across multiple platforms, including adult education
  • Gamification Essentials for Educators – a tip sheet that summarizes the key learnings of this report for adult literacy practitioners
  • Using Gamification Techniques to Increase Learner Comfort with Typing – a sample exercise for adult literacy learners that includes several elements of gamification 

In 2017, the report "Using Gamification in LBS and Beyond", along with the French language translation of the report's executive summary, was released. These are also included in the download below.
