“Are We Playing A Game Today?” Classroom Engagement And Assessment Through Gamification, Tracy A. Hudson Ms, Kendall Lentz Feb 2016

“Are We Playing A Game Today?” Classroom Engagement And Assessment Through Gamification, Tracy A. Hudson Ms, Kendall Lentz

Winthrop Conference on Teaching and Learning

Today’s classroom demands a different style of engagement and assessment, primarily due to the changing nature of today’s learners. In fact, according to Liz Dwyer in “How Gaming is Changing the Classroom,” by the time students are age 21, they will have participated in over 10,000 hours of video gaming. As a result, using traditional pedagogies and “skill and drill” teaching strategies aren’t as effective with students who are more inclined to favor a controller over a book. Therefore, regardless of the discipline, adding gamification to the classroom can dramatically increase student engagement and also provide ...
