Co-Presenter Name(s): none
Area of the World from Which You Will Present: Canton, Michigan, USA
Language in Which You Will Present: English
Target Audience(s): classroom teachers interested in gamifying their classrooms
Short Session Description (one line): Learn how to gamify any classroom and hear about my experiences and results after five years of gamifying (and counting)
Full Session Description (as long as you would like): Are you interested in gamifying more of your lessons for the upcoming school year? I will share real-school examples of how gamification can be applied in a classroom without special tools or technology. Five years ago, I began gamifying the general education mathematics curriculum in my special education setting using free and inexpensive materials commonly found in classrooms. I will show how gamification helps my struggling students overcome learning challenges, and improve attendance, continuity, motivation and skill attainment. I will explain how I got started and show how you can get started, too.

Your Blog is very interesting and has captivated me. I only learnt about gamyfing classrooms a week ago but I am ready to transform my practice.
I am new to Classroom2.0, when you say "I will share real-school examples of how gamification can be applied in a classroom...." What do you mean? Will you share your ideas in this web? or somewhere else?
When I say "real-school" examples I mean I will share examples of how this has actually played out in my classroom over the last five years. I will share them during the webinar as part of the Learning 2.0 Conference. I suppose I could post the powerpoint at my blog. I hadn't really thought about other places I should be sharing this information. I hope you can participate in this webinar, but if you can't, you can always message me through Classroom 2.0 and I can get you the information some other way.
