Games vs Game-based Learning vs Gamification : New Infographic, but still wrong.

Approximate Reading Time: < 1 minute

This same group (Upside Learning) posted a very similar infographic back in June. Although a few things have been changed, the table they present to show the differences is identical to the one they published in June. Sadly, it may be simplified, but it’s still as wrong now as it was then. (If you want to see a description that is closer to being right, see mine at the bottom of this post.)
