The purpose of my session is to show people the power of a well developed gamified classroom. We are moving well beyond just points and badges in this session. We are talking about creating a learning environment where students explore and create through powerful game mechanics that help them reach new heights. Throughout this session we will be discussing low tech and high tech ways in which this can be implemented in the teachers' classrooms. Gamification done this way truly shows there is no prerequisite to play. Moving students into deeper and deeper levels of engagement and empowerment through this structure is what can move there academic scores. I have seen growth in students year over year. Through this session the participants will understand more about this model of teaching and have useable strategies to start off with next year.
