Gamification: Formatting a Dynamic and Fun Classroom
If you're interested in creating friendly competition in your classroom, then this session is for you! Come learn how to play my Smartgames, format new games, and share some of your own tips. This session is applicable to all content areas. While many of the games are math related, most of the resources in this session are immediately transferable to any classroom. Several of the games I have created have no connection to math specifically and can be used with any review sheet or worksheet. All resources and materials will be shared electronically and handouts will be provided. Bring your "A" game!
