How Any Teacher Can Use Lee Sheldon’s Multiplayer Classroom Model

How Any Teacher Can Use Lee Sheldon’s Multiplayer Classroom Model | Get Schooled | Scoop.it
Powerful Pedagogies for Every Teaching Professional From the Cool Cat Teacher Blog by Vicki Davis Follow @coolcatteacher on Twitter Star Trek script writer and professional game author Lee Sheldon has designed his entire college course as a game. His book The Multiplayer Classroom: Designing Coursework as a Game is a favorite of many game based learning experts . Quizzes and tests are fighting evil. Students earn experience points for coming to class. Student study groups are called guilds. You’ve got to hear it to believe it! (And you don’t need any technology.) In fact, Lee welcomes his students to class with this comment: “Hello everyone, welcome to class. You all have an ‘F.’ But you can level up.” [Listen on the web ] [Listen on iTunes ] Thank you JTouch by InFocus, Today’s Sponsor My Interactive White Board (IWB) is gone, and I’m never going back. In today’s show, I’ll tell you how I’m using the Jtouch Interactive Display Board in my classroom. It is much more than an interactive whiteboard. (In some ways it is like a massive touch screen computer .) But with Airplay and also a cool tool called LightCast, every single device in my BYOD classroom can broadcast to the Jtouch display at the front of my classroom. When I’m not teaching, I even show huge moving scenes from nature on the board. I love it. Listen to this show to learn more about how I’m using the Jtouch from Infocus or click here to see it in action. Thank you Jtouch for sponsoring today’s show. Learn about JTouch Essential Questions: Balancing Learning and Fun: How to Create Riveting Lesson Plans How teachers can be Game Masters . Why Lee Sheldon hates the term “gamification” and what term he uses instead. How Lee harnesses student intrinsic motivation to learn instead of badges and points How teachers can start into game-based learning. How to use guilds, solo quests, and group quests to teach. Educator Resources from this Episode Lee Sheldon author of The Multiplayer Classroom: Designing Coursework as a Game Multiplayer Game Design Course Syllabus [Listen on the web ] [Listen on iTunes ] You can subscribe to the podcast on iTunes or elsewhere , get the RSS feed , or listen via the media player above.

Our relationship with VOW had come full-circle: Six years earlier, TWI Co-Executive Director John Esterle and VOW Executive Director Mimi Lok met at a similar luncheon.

 

They were struck by the resonance between our missions, especially between TWI’s focus on dialogue and relationship-building and VOW’s belief in the power of stories to cultivate empathy-based understanding of social justice issues.

Ways to make students feel comfortable when they are new to your school and helping old students to feel empathy toward the new student's situation. Using a film clip is  an unique idea. I would send out these ideas to teachers when they are receiving a new student.  I like the quite ideas that are filled with long lessons. I will also be utilizing the ideas on Monday.
