6 Factors Of Gamification That Changes Students - TeachThought

6 Factors Of Gamification That Changes Students - TeachThought | ESL and technologies | Scoop.it
I was 11 the year my summer camp director transformed the regular schedule, procedures, and lingo that we were used to—into the most memorable, enriching experience I had ever encountered at that point in my life.

I had no idea that he had ‘gamified’ the week; I just knew that it was the best summer ever. Instead of grouping us by numbers, we were named after the Greek alphabet. We competed daily against the other groups in volleyball, softball, kickball, and on the final night —a chariot and Olympic flame opened an epic Olympic Game contest at midnight.

The director, or ‘game master’ as we were inclined to call him, even made everyone reset the clocks and watches—so we never knew what the real time was, the entire schedule was set on some sort of crazy alternate schedule. Now I realize that it probably allowed him to sleep in and us to stay up later, but we were none the wiser.

Daily we played games, wrote skits, went swimming, and competed for cleanest cabins. We did all the regular stuff, but it was more fun because there were rules and boundaries and points and collaboration and competition and a clear, mutual understanding of goals and performance and criteria for success.

As a student, I got to learn more about the power of ‘gamifying’ something, and what effect it had on learners.

With gaming you get to learn that there are students who are of talent sitting in the class who do not respond to regular teaching tactics. In gaming you learn from your mistakes and get points for trying.

Jennifer Hincapie's curator insight, May 4, 9:10 PM
This article offers a snapshot of where ed tech stands now and where it is likely to go in the next five years, according to 56 education and technology experts from 22 countries.

The overall of the topic is divided at three different moments. first, we encounter the trends in educatioon among which we can find deeper learning, rethinking learning and collaboration, it means that these  aspects have started to be included in every-day lesson, and educators have been concerned about it more often than before, but when could it be done?

On the other side, we find the challenges as Authentic Learning, Professional Development, and Personalized Learning & Teacher’s Role, so finally how are we going to conceive technlogy in our classrooms over the next five years?, Are we going to be able to overcome all of these chhallenges, and if so, which is going to be the rle of the educator in the field?, all question that need to be answered
