This article presents a brief overview of the concept of gamification and examines and compares gamification with edutainment and game-based learning. The paper theorizes that gamification in its current industry-driven conceptualization will not work when implemented in educational arenas, and that to be examined and used within educational frames, gamification must be re-examined and re-conceptualized.
