I would also add this paper, which includes a critical discussion of the concept and proposes a working-definition for gamification in educational settings: R. Rughinis, 2013, Gamification for productive interaction: Reading and working with the gamification debate in education ...

Malone and Lepper (1987) is often cited as the seminal paper regarding gamification for education. They started off by identifying factors which affect computer game preferences and then identified motivational factors. Habgood et al (2005) built on this taxonomy and developed a high quality game for supporting the teaching of division. My understanding is ...

This is a really neat question. A strong predictor of cognitive ability is one's environmental enrichment, or the stimulation of the brain in its physical and social surroundings. Those with sensory deprivation often have less success with social situations and self-esteem, as well as (presumably) less sensory input coming in. The implication is that lack ...

"Human experiences can be broadly divided into those that are external and related to interaction with the environment, and experiences ...

I would say that the reasoning behind a statement such as "good students are good in all things" is not one concerning the possibly wide variety of interests and abilities but one of emotional stability and general life competency. No one in their right mind would doubt that different people are interested in different things and therefore not equally ...

this is a great question on a highly fascinating topic for which evidence seemingly abounds amongst many species. from the standpoint of an evolutionary approach, the fight or flight stress response would be informed based on eye contact and movement - gauging the level of activity present in a potential predator's facial attributes. here is a cool link on ...
