Abstract

This book review analyzes Michael Sutton and Kevin Allen's "Emotify! The Power of the Human Element in Game-Based Learning, Serious Games and Experiential Education." The authors work together to bring years of corporate and IT training experience to academics and education in a way that is novel and promising. Game-based learning strives to look ahead to the future of how people learn and uses research applications to get there. In addition to showing the power of self-efficacy and prompt feedback in an academic environment that uses gamification as its primary mode of lecture, the book is rife with how to's for educators.

Keywords: game-based learning, experiential education
