Gamification
Level Up - Power Up - Gotta Catch em All

Greetings Sequoyah, 

Gamification in the classroom is gaining a lot of traction. Students are geared to games. Probably not a stretch for new teachers who grew up with gaming systems in the home, but more of one for those of us with first generation Pong and Breakout. Games follow a formula. They become increasingly difficult as players master skills. Specific actions produce specific results. Learning those processes is key. Gamification takes the principles of games and incorporates them into the curriculum. 
Our buddy Scott Haselwood published his latest The Drive podcast on Gamification. It is a good introduction to the process and covers some of his techniques for incorporating the concepts. Give it a listen at: https://soundcloud.com/teachingfromhere/the-drive-episode-13-gamification

Thanks and don't forget to be awesome, 

Andy
