    Thanks for the comment and I am excited to hear you are using the principles in the book for your work at the international school library. I hope that they are having a positive impact on learning. Sound like you’ve got a great handle on the use of stories and would love to learn more about how you are using gamification to improve engagement in Applied Linguistics. Very interesting.

    Dear Dr. Kapp,
    As an Honours English graduate, I really enjoyed your insights here into the use of story – some great ideas, thanks.
    I read you wonderful book – Gamification – and am applying the concepts in the international school library where I work. I have a board game that I improved with your insights – adding the hero cycle narrative and increasing the aesthetics, as you say – an often overlooked item.
    I continue to find ways to gamify my library, as my MA dissertation in Applied Linguistics on the use of games and humor to improve engagement and lifelong learning connects wonderfully with your ideas.
    This blog was a great reminder of some of your powerful ideas – great work!
