Welcome to the gamified classroom- an immersive experience for ANY grade level or content area that transforms your classroom into a hive of student exploration, curiosity, and wonder, where meaningful discoveries are driven by learners who genuinely look forward to doing more work. Shift student motivation from grade chasing to genuine curiosity. You’ll learn to use “gamification” techniques to enrich student experience and create lasting memories that make learning engaging, accessible, and fun. Join us for a full day of serious fun and games for teachers of any content area, and learn how to adopt the basic principles of game-based design to transform any classroom a game like experience with no fancy tech required.
