Participants will be able to construct lesson ideas using Bloxels, focusing on enrichment/remediation skills to gamify the RTI Model.
The Bloxels interactive video game creator can be used in all Tiers of RTI to challenge students' thinking. In this session, attendees will have a hands-on experience of designing a video game based on narrative skills such as character, setting, and plot.
Participants will be given a QR code to scan, linking them to a Smore presentation with resources, ideas, and lessons for using Bloxels in the classroom and research on gamification in the classroom setting.
Success criteria: (Participants will know they have succeeded when...) *they can identify character, setting, and plot in a narrative
*they design a game with at least 3 boards demonstrating knowledge and understanding of character, setting, and plot in a narrative
*they have successfully played their finished video game
