I have already asked this question here, but I did not receive my answer. I found this site a more appropriate place to ask it.
I found many studies discovering the impacts of game-based learning on motivation for learning.
You can also find a summary of them in this book chapter.
However, it is still unclear to me if this motivation is for entertainment or for learning. I was wondering if there is any study showing that students who are adapted to this method of learning have a higher motivation to pursue learning in other forms. My concern is about long-term effects of this method of learning. What is the intrinsic reaction of K-12 students who have adapted to game-based learning when they start higher education in which game-based learning is not provided? Will they have a higher incentive to study? or a lower incentive, because they prefer to play games rather than studying?
