How Gamification Uncovers Nuance In The Learning Process

Gamification is a term that points to how gaming can be useful in situations that do not typically involve typical gaming. An example of this would be how in social media, we are all competitive in some ways trying to collect the most likes, comments, shares, or status updates in general.
