Welcome De 🙂
I have written a commentary piece on the reflection of gamification research: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/18792695/papers/Gamification.pdf. So I am right at home reading Plamen’s piece on gamification and education.
I am collaborating on a project that creates a prototype gamified e-learning website – where we add gaming elements that aim to create challenge, curiosity, and fantasy – Malone’s taxonomy. But it is still in initial testing stage that I don’t have anything written up yet. I have done a study earlier just on games with a focus on competition (https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/18792695/papers/games.pdf). I don’t know if these are of interests to your blog, if yes, please let me know.
