WHAT IS GBL?
GBL stands for Game-Based Learning. There is some confusion around what GBL is in the field of education, and it’s often mistaken for gamification. Whereas gamification aims to incentivize an activity that a person might otherwise choose not to do (often through points or other awards), GBL helps students achieve measurable educational goals like developing critical thinking skills or knowledge mastery of a subject. GBL is a more effective way to learn not only because it’s immersive and engaging but also because it’s fun to play and leads to better performance than the traditional textbook-based curriculum.
