One needs to make a distinction between the use of games in education and gamification. Games are common
ways of passing the time and having fun. Gamification is more about using the elements of games that motivate
people, and applying them to educational experiences. These elements can take many different forms, from short
activities done in a face-to-face setting to large, open-ended digital experiences that are technology driven.
