This is a thorough and thoughtful explanation of both the whys and the hows of gamifying a classroom or even just a unit of study. The presenter has placed a link to her slide deck (which includes some important links to resources) on the bunnypad, a definite plus. Thank you for a great webinar!

This has definitely been one of my favorite webinars so far (I'm a new user). I have always loved games myself and I know my kids do, too.

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.
