Presentation Title: Creating an Edventure in Your Classroom
Presentation Description: Gamification is one of the hottest topics in education today. This presentation explores how to gamify the entire classroom by creating a gaming culture in which assignments are embedded in quests that earn participants points, badges, prizes and the ability to level up in a year-long game. This strategy teaches individual accountability, collaboration, community service, leadership, academic achievement in core content areas, critical thinking and problem solving.
