Gamification in education fails

I`ve just read the academic paper that actually using gamification in education in the long term fails. It negatively impacts students if they don`t win the game basically :) What do you think about this?


I don't know much about the concept of gamification in educational sphere in my country per se, but I feel for me as long as I was competing with myself (and not against my peers) it would still be a very benifitial method. Makes a big difference if I get KO'd and have to restart a level VS losing against actual other humans (fellow classmates for instance). I am the first to admit that I can be a sore loser if I am in a bad mood, but not failing publicly goes a long way in maintaining motivation.

The best case study I saw on this topic is → Based on that my opinion basically is that gamification shouldn't be a single way reward system and encouragement should be done in many different ways in the process. If there is only one way, it may only motivate one group.

It teaches students to accept their failures. Education is a complex process, and gamification might not suit everyone, but it's one of the ways. To me, it's not the best variant. I prefer classical education, learning all from books. But I use this source for some of my tasks. The education system must be more adaptive to every student and depends on their level and interests.

I think that this is the right direction and it is worth testing it further. The fact is that the traditional approach in education is now failing and it has not changed for many years. This check of essays that students take from sites or similar, underachievement and low interest should be corrected
