PresenterJared Thorlakson

Session Outline & Objectives: 

The experiences I will be sharing will be from the point-of-view of a junior high math/science teacher - but they are applicable to anyone who is looking for a unique way of delivering material to a diverse group of kids, wants to explore more authentic experiences, or just loves playing games. (I see them of being particularly synergistic in a later-years elementary setting.)

We will look at how the following ideas interact:

  • Class Management Gamification (e.g. Classcraft)
  • Content Gamification (Kahoots, quizizz, boardgames, etc.)
  • Project work and makerspaces
  • Flipped or blended learning (and ways to track online work)
  • Online testing/quizzes
  • online communication systems (such as Edmodo.)

I will share how I use these systems in a way where the whole is much greater than the sum of its parts and we will discuss how these tools can be applied to a wider range of situations. We will take some time to set up accounts, play around, and post (and perhaps develop) content.

Participants will be on their own for lunch, but those that bring a bag lunch can play one of my educational board games while they eat. :)
