As part of the first annual Grassroots Game Conference, held from April 23 through April 29, 2012 throughout the city of Philadelphia, a panel discussion was held on the subject of gamification and how it can apply to community engagement and volunteer recruitment.
Located in the CBS Auditorium at the University of the Arts, a panel of individuals with an eclectic set of credentials sought to address a number of topics in the realm of gamification. Ranging from current examples of implementation to the future outlook of gamification, and including some specific cases and examples, the panel was able to cover a wide berth of material.
