  3. Nudges•  We are “predictably irrational” (Ariely), prone to mental “mistakes” (Kahnman & Tversky) –  E.g., loss aversion, anchoring, temporal biases•  Insight: leverage this knowledge to create “choice architectures” (Sunstein & Thaler) –  E.g., changing defaults, mandating disclosure –  Governments applying, especially U.S., U.K.
  4. My Grudge with Nudge•  Not the standard conservative critique! –  (the “Nanny State”)•  Choice limited to behaviorist conception –  What people do, not why they do it –  Deviations from “rationality” aren’t all “mistakes” –  Good data (“RECAP”) doesn’t always produce good results•  Architecture reduced to construction –  Real architecture is a design practice
  5. Missing Piece: Motivation•  How does the experience satisfy human needs?•  Why do people comply?•  Can we go beyond basic compliance?•  Behaviorism is right… until it isn’t –  Teresa Amabile’s research on creativity –  Deci & Ryan on motivation in the workplace, school, etc.
  6. Games as Motivational Design•  Good games are fun –  Challenges, contingency, competition, teamwork, etc. –  Voluntariness necessitates engagement techniques•  Games are designed artifacts –  Process: iterative, human-centered, goal-oriented –  Rich palette (e.g., points, levels, avatars, virtual goods) –  Developed practice (e.g. playtesting, narrative, balance) –  Focus on the player journey –  Recognition that users will game the system

  15. Rewards+Chance+Social CAPRI (Balaji Prabhakar)
  16. Data Protection Issues•  All interactions trackable•  Granular user data feeds analytics –  “We’re running several hundred tests at any given time for every one of our games.” – Mark Pincus, Zynga (2010)•  To whom do achievements belong?
  17. Reasons for Optimism•  Public sector doesn’t need to monetize –  Nascent industry of gamification vendors and adopters seeking guidance•  Player-centric design•  Gamified UX for privacy policies (Calo)
  18. Gamify the Privacy Policy?
