Teacher workload and maintaining high levels of student engagement is a challenge for all teachers. If you’re searching for ways to address both these issues, then Gamification could be the answer you’re looking for! Inspired by Dave Burgess’ P.I.R.A.T.E philosophy and the work of MIchael Matera, this session will explore the idea of Gamification. In a Gamified setting, students are challenged to take control of their own learning, motivated by a game scenario that runs parallel with their lessons, tasks and projects. Attendees will be invited to enter a Gamified Classroom, explore how G Suite for Education, various apps and websites can be used together to promote a flipped learning environment that not only promotes higher levels of engagement for students, but lessens the workload of teachers and brings back FUN into the classroom.
