Building Heroes: Gamification of Maker-Centred Projects for Self-Paced Mastery
Feedback form is now closed.

In the first part of this presentation I will discuss how I incorporate game mechanics into my classroom routine using a couple of key digital platforms. I will reflect on the achievements and obstacles encountered in gamifying units across the past three years and the effect this has had on student engagement and overall achievement.

I will then reflect on recent efforts to build maker centred projects into the 'Game' as part of the Harvard Project Zero lead course; 'Thinking and Learning in the Maker-Centered Classroom'.  I will share obstacles met and solutions found with marrying these two pedagogical approaches together.
