The Magic Circle of the Gamified Classroom
Industrial-age instructional strategies leave many Information-age students in the dust. Gamified instruction is one method among many that teachers might embrace to leverage the mindset of Millennials and the unique power of games to sustain interest, build commitment, enhance collaboration, and give students power over their own learning.
In this webinar, presented by Jonathan Cassie, author of the ASCD book, Level Up Your Classroom: The Quest to Gamify Your Lessons and Engage Your Students, you will have an opportunity to explore the basics of the gamified classroom. You will learn what gamification is, explore the four kinds of games, investigate the notion of the “magic circle” and learn why you should care about this instructional technique because of the unique ways it can shape student learning. The author will conclude by discussing data from a gamified classroom experience at a charter school in Detroit and investigating language you might use when facing skeptical audiences.
