The Value of Gamification 74/180

9200000038412465Who doesn’t love to play games? We often have family game night in my house.  Some of our favorites are Quirkle, Gamewright games (Sleeping Queens, Gubs, etc.), Monopoly variations, and even Toss Your Cookies (it is not what it sounds like!).  We sometimes talk about ways to improve the game or even create variations of the rules.

What skills do we learn/practice from playing games?  What skills do you use when you redesign a game? Are these skills valuable in our classrooms?

Have you seen the Brainpop games? Learn more about gamification at this TLTalk Radio Podcast with Matt Farber, author of Gamify Your Classroom.
