She will discuss the basics of game design and how you can employ them in your classroom. In addition, Lauren will offer specific suggestions and provide resources that you can use to develop a classroom gamification system for management, instruction, or both.

Applying games to the learning experience. This can be helpful with many of my students. Playing games to learn math concepts is ideal for third graders.

Very interesting. Before you said it, I was thinking, "Simplek12 uses a lot of gamification!" I am looking to engage my students more. Thank you for the suggestions.
One question I do have: I teach Spanish. If I need students to reach a certain point by the end of the year, how can gamification guarantee that the differentiation will allow all students reach the end by the end of the year?
