Here is part two of the questions about gamification from a 7th grade in a California school. You can see part one of the question and answer session at this link (and you want to check it out, she asked some great questions).
10. How long have you taught with a traditional learning version? AND 11. How long have you taught with a gamified learning version?
When I was in college, we learned to teach in the “traditional” manner and I have been doing that for a while and still do in some instances. First as a student teacher and then as a professor and even as a facilitator of training events. However, as a professor, I have also always taught a class where I divide students into teams, give them a mock Request for Proposal and have them compete against one another. In that sense, I think it is safe to say that I have been using a form of gamification for the past 19 or so. (although, it wasn’t called gamification). And I’ve been doing traditional instruction for the past 19 years or so.
