Learning Happens

This week I learned about the concept of gamification for learning. An idea that says: Hey, learning happens all the time in life so why not make it explicitly fun and meaningful?

I’ve been thinking about it, and I don’t think it’s necessary to have learning activities always labelled as ‘learning activities’. If they’re fun to do and you happen to learn something from it, I can’t see a down side to that. Life, it seems to me, is just one giant unlabelled learning activity. Learning happens.

Life doesn’t come with warning labels. (Except this one, which I just made.)

Where would you put it?
