We’re fresh from the Gamification Summit in NYC earlier this week, so we were thrilled to find this infographic that illustrates an aspect of gamification in education: Video Games. We like how the infographic highlights various subjects different games employ for their game mechanics. We don’t like the tangled web which make the graphic difficult to decipher, but it conveys some of the overlap and sometimes nebulous “educational” aspects of trying to fit games into an educational category.

We’ll be following up more on the Gamification Summit in later posts.

Even games not dedicated to a educational skill can have many educational features. I think in the future, video games will gain a wider acceptable as educational tools.
