The face of instruction is changing, as educators often struggle to engage students. Gamification, or applying game mechanics to non-traditional settings, has proved to be an innovative and effective way to capture the interest of today's learners. In this session, educators will create a basic template to help them begin the process of gamifying their classroom for little or no money. After attending this session, participants will:- understand what gamification in education means, and how it will help to engage students.- understand the difference between gamification and game-based learning.- begin to create a gamification model.- learn other resources to gamify for little or no cost.
