New gurus

First up this month we've got a couple of new gurus to welcome. Rob Alvarez Bucholska (32nd) who is focusing on gamification for learning at the IE business school in Madrid and Sabrina Bruehwiler a freelancer who has turned her UserAdventure.com home page into a game.

Welcome guys! They enter the gurus power 100 at ranks 32nd and 28th respectively

Content highlights

Now for some highlighted content from the previous month.

I liked Sylvester Arnabs visual of merging physical and digital in his Play Learn in Everyday Spaces slideshare. When we realise that the Simpsons also included a president trump there's something about life imitating art here!

When Monica Cornetti gave a gamification talk at the national speakers convention it was nice to see her reimagined as a pirate. Aaarr

 

The Assocation for Project Management's introduction to gamification got lots talking this month. Szymon Machajewski's tweet to the paper saying "learning under compulsion will not stick" was retweeted over 100 times!

 

Top Players this month

Ercan Altug Yilmaz holds onto the number 5 spot. As does Pete Jenkins of gamification+.

Octalysis guru Yu-kai Chou blast back in at number 3, while Sylvester Arnab creeps up one to number 2.

But a massive jump of 15 spots brings Monica Cornetti back in at number one.

Well done to the top players, and well done to everyone else.
