Strategies for Meaningful Gamification: Concepts behind Transformative Play and Participatory Museums 


At the Meaningful Play 2012 conference on Oct. 18th, I presented my newest paper on meaningful gamification.  The goal of this paper is to focus on different ways to create meaningful gamification by looking at play theory and theories behind participatory museums.  It is more of a theoretical paper, so it can be seen as a follow-up to my previous theoretical work about meaningful gamification.
