Gamification of Education

Speaking of pedagogy, the discussion around the gamification of education at various levels appears to be heating up:

* [CHE Profhacker post reporting on gamification results][1]
* [Gamasutra article rebuking such attempts to turn education into a game][2]

I would like to see a fuller discussion of active pedagogy versus project-oriented course design versus gamification. The boundaries don’t seem clear to me.
