It's All Fun and Games: Gamification in the Community College Classroom

Learning is serious business, but that doesn't mean it can't be fun! We all know students who play difficult video games for hours outside of class without fear of failure or boredom. Why not employ some of the same gamification strategies to increase engagement and risk-taking in class? During this webinar, participants learn about a variety of strategies and low- and high-tech tools that can help add intrigue, motivation, competition, and fun into any lesson, unit, or semester. By the end of the webinar, participants will have learned about the benefits of using gamification in the classroom, ideas to easily gamify any lesson, technology tools that allow for greater gamification, and how using a semester-long game can help deliver course content in a way that sparks student motivation.
