According to Gabe Zichermann — the world’s foremost expert and public speaker on the subject of gamification, this interesting concept is “the process of using game thinking and game dynamics to engage audiences and solve problems.” It can be used in different contexts, such as marketing, business strategies, education and more. Research has found gamification to have a positive impact on people, and it can improve our ability to understand digital content.
