See on Scoop.itM-learning, E-Learning, and Technical Communications

Following on from a recent post The Pedagogies in Game Based Learning, this article will look at how Gagné’s Nine Events of Instruction can be applied to game based learning.

Danielle M. Villegas‘s insight:

Ah, good ol’ Gagné! His Nine Events of Instruction are one of the gold standards of instructional design, and for good reason. They make sense. This is a great article that shows how well-written gamification used for learning follows Gagné’s rules very well. It sure explains why my video-game addicted son learns so much as he plays! Excellent article.
