Game-based Learning

Game-based learning is a field of research and game design based on observations that play, structured or unstructured, conditions the human brain for transformation and learning.

Game-Based Learning incorporates game dynamics traditionally seen in board games or video games to teach students. There is often a competitive element which motivates individuals to perform better relative to their individual previous performances when compared to their peers.  Learning is typically structured around achievements, levels, badges or other progression mechanisms.
