The purpose of the poster is to help coaches and professional developers understand how to determine the needs of their staff, plan to meet the needs through engaging professional learning activities and reinforce the learning through gamification.
Change related to technology integration is challenging for teachers who have previously taught using other methods. This poster will highlight how to encourage teachers to take ownership of their learning while feeling supported by their colleagues.
The success of one school over the course of a year-long gamification will be presented. Pre and post-test results will be shared with participants to help them understand the impact of gamification in a school environment and culture.
Participants will describe how to gamify professional learning in their building or district.
Participants will explain how gamifying professional learning connects to the ISTE standards.
Participants will articulate the benefits of gamifying professional learning and the direct impact on student learning.
