Une seconde difficulte de l’addiction aux jeux video L’application du schéma donné par Marc Valleur à la cyberaddiction pose une seconde difficulté. On se souvient que ce schéma différencie les personnes concernées par le comportement ou le produit de tous les autres. Parmi les personnes de la première catégorie, certaines ne développeront pas de dépendance, d’autres auront un usage problématiques, et d’autres développeront une dépendance. L’intervention du psychiatre ou du psychologue concerne bien évidement les personnes qui développent une dépendance et celles qui ont un usage problématique. Ce schéma était parfaitement applicable aux début du déploiement des mondes numériques.

How Gamification Works - 3D GameLab Instead of courses consisting mainly of textbook learning and lectures, classes built using game mechanics such as badges, experience points, levels and leaderboards, boost student engagement by allowing students to choose from “quests” and progress at their own pace through a series of educational activities. Students are motivated due to personal choice and meaningfulness, real-time feedback, the ability to collaborate or compete, and over time, they learn stay persistent in learning due to prior successes. Quest tasks can range from listening to a podcast, collecting and analyzing real-time data, or watching a short video to partnering with a classmate for discussion or writing a short essay.

Octalysis: Complete Gamification Framework Gamification is design that places the most emphasis on the human in the process.

Gartner Redefines Gamification: What Do You Think? Gamification is considered a relatively new term. As a new term, its definition is in flux and is continually changing. The popular media and different professionals continue to offer different and sometimes competing definitions.

What Makes a Learning Game?
Les utilisateurs des réseaux sociaux qui n’ont jamais entendu parler de Farmville ou de Mafia Wars sont devenus rarissimes. Les Social Games ont su se faire une place confortable sur le Web en quelques années seulement. Mais que sont les Social Games exactement ? Si l’on se réfère à la définition anglo-saxonne : « Games that run on a social network and use that network to enhance gameplay between players ». En d’autres termes, ce sont des jeux au gameplay minimaliste reposant sur les réseaux sociaux, et qui associent les interactions sociales à l’expérience ludique proposée. Selon une étude du Cabinet Parks Associates de 2011, la moitié des utilisateurs de Facebook ont déjà joué à ce type de jeu et les utilisateurs actifs se comptent en dizaine de millions chaque mois. Le Social Gaming arrive ! Le Social Gaming arrive !

If there was ever a cache that everyone should try once, pict-o-caches would likely be near the top of the list. They take aspects of several different types of caches and join them together to make a cache that everyone can participate in and enjoy. But how do they work? First, we need to establish what they are… Pict-o-caches are a class on their own. Taking cues from multi-caches, on-site puzzles, and visual puzzles, these puzzles definitely require an observant eye. Pict-O-Caches | Trip's GeoAdventures Pict-O-Caches | Trip's GeoAdventures
