We’re excited to announce that Karl Kapp, author of The Gamification of Learning and Instruction, will be helping us kick off two exciting weeks of challenges (a game!) by speaking with us on Monday, November 24, at 11 AM. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to join Karl and discuss the difference between gaming and gamification in education. Please register today to attend the webinar. And, please spread the word to your colleagues.
We invite you to play our new game. We created this Pluck the Turkey game (Nicole’s done a masterful job at making this game fun and engaging don’t you think?) so that you’d be ready for Karl’s webinar on Monday and so that you’d have a fun way of learning or reinforcing your learning about games and the gamification of education.
Before trying the game please review our first two posts on gamification, dated November 10th and November 17th. Then, once you think you understand gamification, start the game by clicking on the image at the left. (Hmm, I’ll bet you’ve told students to review your lecture material before taking your quiz too, with mixed results!)
Please comment and let us know what you think of game! Did it help you to understand gamification? Did you save Thanksgiving?
