So far the blog book tour for The Gamification of Learning and Instruction Fieldbook: Ideas into Practice is off to a good start. Not as consistent as some past tours but I’ve been crazy busy with all kinds of great gamification happenings.
Here is a recap of the tour so far (more great tour stops coming):
Tour Stop: Karl Kapp’s New Gamification Fieldbook for Learning Professionals–Great overview of the book and good description of the change occurring toward the use of games and gamification in the learning space.
Tour Stop: Review of Karl Kapp’s newest book on learning games aka serious games –Sharon Boller of Bottom Line Performance contributed to the book and also provided a great book review.
Tour Stop: Karl Kapp – Crystal Balling with Learnnovators (Part 1) and (Part II)–had a great interview with the folks at Learnnovators. It was a great time and a great opportunity to discuss a wide range of issues within the field.
