As teachers what can we do to make our classes more exciting for students? We know that many will sit in front of a computer or game console and play for hours, and when they do not succeed the first time, or the tenth time or the fiftieth time they keep trying. How do we get them to perservere in the classroom when they are not successful? This post explores this, providing five "secrets of game design" that might make a difference in your classroom. The five secrets are listed below but click through to the post to learn more about them.

* The Appointment Dynamic: Be Here At This Time, Get a Prize

* The Failure Dynamic: Fail Early, Fail Often

* The Flexibility Dynamic: Provide Multiple Paths to Success

* The Progression Dynamic: Scaffold and Recognize Progress

* The Construction Dynamic: Build Something That Matters

Cindy Riley Klages's curator insight, January 30, 9:07 PM

Run your class like a game designer, paying attention to the following "dynamics":  The Appointment Dynamic, the Failure Dynamic, the Flexibility Dynamic, the Progression Dynamic, and the Construction Dynamic.
