Pwning the Humanities: Gamification in the Classroom

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Recent trends in education are demanding individual differentiation for students, but the only answers are layered tools atop existing curriculum and classroom structures. Gamification offers an opportunity to redefine the way we run classrooms, providing diverse challenges for more engaged students with multiple dimensions of differentiations (addressing pace, choice, and ability) as well as an assessment system focusing on mastery of skills instead of punishment for mistakes. Students' feelings of stress and anxiety diminish in such a context because the desire to keep trying and to level up replace any extraneous fears about failing. Come learn how structural gamification redefines the relationship of student, teacher, and curriculum, and how you can immediately implement its strategies in a session that includes hands-on time to discover your own gamified route.
