Ya saben que soy un gran coleccionador de enlaces, de temas que me interesan o que veo que podría ser interesante compartir. Desde hace un tiempo, estoy viendo, leyendo, estudiando, cómo es la "gamification"
Gamification is the use of game design techniques, game thinking and game mechanics to enhance non-game contexts. Typically gamification applies to non-game applications and processes, in order to encourage people to adopt them, or to influence how they are used. Gamification works by making technology more engaging, by encouraging users to engage in desired behaviors, by showing a path to mastery and autonomy, by helping to solve problems and not being a distraction, and by taking advantage of humans' psychological predisposition to engage in gaming. The technique can encourage people to perform chores that they ordinarily consider boring, such as completing surveys, shopping, filling out tax forms, or reading web sites. Available data from gamified websites, applications, and processes indicate potential improvements in areas like user engagement, ROI, data quality, timeliness, or learning.
O la versión en español:
La gamificación, a veces traducido al español como jueguización o juguetización, es el uso de la mecánica de jugabilidad1 en contextos ajenos a los juegos, con el fin de que las personas adopten cierto comportamiento.
La gamificación sirve para hacer el ámbito de aplicación más atractivo,2 y mediante el fomento de los comportamientos deseados, aprovechándose de la predisposición psicológica de los seres humanos para participar en juegos.
La técnica puede animar a las personas a realizar tareas que normalmente se consideran aburridas,3 como completar encuestas, ir de compras, o leer páginas web.
Vean por ejemplo Badgeville para ver cómo este tema puede ser convertido en un emprendimiento. O la presentación en video Fun is the Future de Gamification Blog. Tendría bastante para comentar. Pero por ahora, les dejo estos enlaces.
