“Gamified innovation is being driven from all corners of the economy,” said Gabe Zichermann, CEO of Gamification Co and chair of GSummit. “What AXA, Mozilla, and Social Chocolate will share is not only the power of gamification, but how these techniques work toward different ends in diverse industries. I personally look forward to welcoming them on stage!”
This Showcase Series will include the following:
• Social Chocolate – SuperBetter: Social Chocolate’s first game, SuperBetter, was first conceived by founder Jane McGonigal during recovery from an extended injury. SuperBetter helps players achieve health goals or recover from their own injury and illness using social game techniques. GSummit attendees will also be offered beta access to the game before it goes public!
• Mozilla – Open Badges: The Mozilla Foundation will present on Mozilla’s Open Badge Infrastructure, the first broadly-supported open source system for badges and alternative credentials. The Open Badge Infrastructure supports a badge ecosystem for public recognition for learning and achievement that take place anywhere, including outside the classroom. Badges can be issued for skills or achievements that have occurred across the web and in life or work experiences, collected through the Open Badge Infrastructure, and then shared across the web, social networks, or resumes for real results like jobs, credits and advancement.
• AXA Equitable – Pass It On!: Representatives from the US life insurance unit of global insurance group AXA SA will show off their new “Pass it On!” game, which teaches the value of life insurance and planning for the future through a personal family simulation game. “Pass It On!” represents AXA Equitable’s first gamified effort – a major milestone for the company and industry.
“We designed SuperBetter to help people achieve their personal health goals and recover quickly and effectively from illness and injury,” said Jane McGonigal, Founder of SocialChocolate. “We’re very excited to share the full beta publicly for the first time with the community at Gamification Summit.”
