This is, in part, a continuation of Friday’s post on the gamification of the classroom. In this post, by Ben Bertoli, the teacher explains how he turned his 6th grade class into a role-playing game. I love his ideas on allowing the students to create their own characters and to participate in “Random Encounter Friday”. The nine point list that he gives of the basic plan for implementing “Class Realm” in his classroom would make a good place to start for anyone who is interested in trying this with his or her own students.
I have started a new Pinterest board on “Gamification of the Classroom”. In addition, you can also choose that category from my category list on the right to find other blog posts on this topic.
