Gamification FOR Students, Not Gamification OF Students #superbetter

While I’ve just started reading SuperBetter by Jane McGonigal, it’s got me thinking about Gamification in schools in a new way (which I believe Jane has spoken about before, but is a new thought for myself).

What if instead of gamifying the classroom toward the learning objectives we have for students, if we gamify the classroom to help students reach the goals they have for their own learning?

More thoughts and reflections on #SuperBetter to come, I hope!

    Excellent idea Robert. The more students feel in charge of their own learning, the better educators prepare them for all facets of life. See you soon.
