Gamification of Science Class

November 11, 2013

Learning

I need your help students!

I am studying Gamification, the process of making activities more game-like.

Goal: to increase student interest and engagement through:

  • competition
  • achieving goals
  • gaining status
  • helping others,
  • getting epic wins.

I would like to know your opinions on gaming and how engaging in game play could help you learn about science.

The video below is of a scientist discussing how video games can help save the world!

Start viewing at 9 minutes if you do not want to watch the whole video.
