Multiplayer Classroom: Designing Coursework as a Game FILLING

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity filling up

Imagine students engaged in a multiplayer world, with XP, quests, mobs, dungeons, and guilds. A massive online game? No. Make this happen in your classroom, where students learn by playing; where they teach each other and themselves. Come play along and learn how.

Using gamification, the most motivational aspects of games in non-game settings, has changed the game of school. This session will demonstrate the power that this teaching style has to offer. If you use gamification for a unit or an entire course, it will improve student learning, increase engagement and excitement in and out of class, and unlock your students’ potential.

In this session, attendees will leave with ideas of how to run their own multiplayer classroom and time to generate some ideas of their own. Presenter Michael Matera will share his successful integration of this method of instruction. Come to listen, learn, share, and even play.
