Gamification of Education:
This article is about all the good resources on Gamification of Education. Much of this has been posted previously, but I decided to make a clear guide to the top videos for Gamification Education. The best overall is the new month long 4 episode series on Extra Credits about Gaming and education. However, if you don't know the basics it's confusing or at least less engaging then if you were familiar with the concept. If you’d like to apply game like learning to the class watch the following videos in the order provided and you will be ready to start your journey. To begin lets watch a video on what Education and Game like learning is about. Nothing is as good as the following video for that.
After, I would recommend diving a little deeper into some of the concepts. The video below talks about the importance of student choice in classes, and shows how faculty can apply choice to classes.
Once you learn about student choice. Watch this amazing video on failure also by extra credits.
Once you learn about how classes and homework may invoke fear in students watch this last video to learn about mastery based learning and eliminating fear in classes through the appropriate use of assessments and there interaction with failure.
If you've watched all the videos and you still want to know more about gamificaiton and education. Now watch the rest of Extra Credits. Here is playlist of all there videos of games and education. Good luck and if you use this information in your class let me know.
