I love the video "The 21st Century Learner" from the MacArthur Foundation. He says that gamers, "want to be measured" and "if I ain't learning it ain't fun". Obviously these "gamers" are in our classrooms, and we need to make sure that they know the Learning Target and Objective of our lesson and what they need to learn to be successful. They are motivated by the need to move to the next level and in our curriculum that is the next concept that built upon the previous one.
I have gathered articles, resources, websites and Youtube videos about the incorporation of gaming into our curriculum. Check it out at Gaming Resources on Symbaloo. I will continue to add resources for this site.
How can you start to incorporate gaming into your curriculum? I would love to hear about your resources, ways your are incorporating and your successes or challenges in the classroom.
