Sometimes classroom projects happen that change everything for you as a teacher. For me, Gamifi-ed has completely rocked my world in terms of what I think students can do. Stay tuned next week, but for now, we're kicking off the Gamifi-ed OOC with this #ecmatters show and a video.
Who will want to listen to this show?
If you're curious or have questions about the effective use of games in education, you'll want to listen to this show.
My favorite thing in the show is the questions each guest shared that worries them about games in education.
