“Gamification enables technology-enhanced engagement that stimulates classroom creativity and collaboration that extends beyond it. The author makes a clear connection between gamification as the way to bridge content learned in school to real learning that endures in children’s lives.”
“Forgetting how games build bonds that last in a fun, collaborative way, teachers today need to scaffold learning in ways to foster data gathering, analysis, evaluation and collaborative creation of ideas and knowledge. Kim Caise’s book on gamification learning activities is a solid first step in shifting the conversation.”

Got home this evening and what did I find waiting for me? This book by Kim Caise! Woo!
So I thumbed through it and this is
1) ACTUAL gamification–not just games-based learning!
2) an easy read/use for real classroom teachers. I’m envious I don’t have a classroom of my own to try this out on.
3) a strong support for those wondering how to use technology in everyday lessons!
Just a win-win-win!
Will read more deeply tomorrow, but Kim, I think you’ve truly done it with this one!
