Would you like to engage your students, increase motivation, and promote a deeper understanding of subject matter, while encouraging participation and learning from mistakes? One way of doing this is with gamification. Join Avi Spector as he covers 7 key elements of a gamified classroom and discusses how gamification incorporates positive reinforcement, choice, and recognition of achievements. He will provide an overview of a teacher's gamification model that aims to incorporate some of these key elements and will explain why this is not about awarding badges or bringing video games into a classroom. Avi will also share a variety of concrete gamification strategies that can be applied to any subject area or class.

I love this! I was sort of doing some of these things anyway (e.g., grading by points earned, not lost), but now I want to try to take a more deliberate and unified approachputting all those pieces together and seeing how it works in my middle school ELA classroom.
