Gamification 8

I found these articles yesterday:

A literature review & gamification principles:

Maura A Smale. "Learning through Quests and Contests: Games in Information Literacy Instruction." Journal of Library Innovation 2.2 (2011): 36-55. http://www.libraryinnovation.org/article/view/148/238

The second one describes what I did this semester, with the only major difference being their focus on “how to evaluate Internet sources“ and mine “advanced database searching techniques.”

Maura A Smale. "Get in the Game: Developing an Information Literacy Classroom Game." Journal of Library Innovation 3.1 (2012): 126-47. http://www.libraryinnovation.org/article/view/182/319

Today I found out that Jeffrey Brand will be visiting GVSU as the School of Communications' distinguished alumnus. I am reading his chapter:
Penny de Byl and Jeffrey Brand. "Designing games to motivate student cohorts through targeted game genre selection." Handbook of research on improving learning and motivation through educational games: Multidisciplinary approaches. Ed. P.Felicia. Hershey, PA: IGI Global, 2011. 567-582.
I look forward to his visit!
