Tyto is NOT Gamified Learning

Gamification: adding game elements on traditional non-game contexts, while the game part does not contribute to learning objectives
Tyto is NOT pop-up multiple choice questions over unrelated gameplay.
Tyto is NOT watching videos and answering questions overlayed on a game.
Tyto is NOT e-learning activities through a portal that is inside of a game.

Tyto is Game-Based Learning

Game-based learning: utilizing gaming to meet learning objectives, while playing the game itself is the learning process
Tyto Online Screenshot: the player follows an ant up a leaf high above the ground.
Observe phenomena and collect the data in the game world from the first-person perspective, instead of watching a video.
Tyto Online Screenshot: the player analyzes a line chart showing the relationship between the leaf hight and spore travel distance.
Analyze the data you collected and draw conclusions, instead of being handed data.
Tyto Online Screenshot: player makes an argument of why the ants walk onto the tall leaves to die, by connecting different pieces of evidence,
Make a claim by reasoning with the evidences you collected, instead of memorizing conclusions and not understanding why.
