The other day I received a very nice email from a 7th grade student in a high school is California. She wanted to know if I could answer a few questions about gamification as she saw my TEDx talk and has gotten interested in the subject of games and gamification for learning. I think it is awesome that she is so excited about games and gamification for learning so here are the questions and my answers. Thanks for the email (although, it is a lot of questions:).
1. Many teachers use the standard learning methods (textbooks, paper, pencil, etc.). Most don’t even know about gamification in education. What’s the average amount of teachers that try the gamified version of learning?
