Collaboration

Classcraft is a website that teachers can use to "gamify"  their classroom content and behavior expectations. The design of the website is based on concepts from fantasy games and literature with character classes such as mage, healer, and warrior. Students get to choose which type of character they will have and what that character looks like. They are rewarded by their teacher for making progress or demonstrating good behavior with experience points (XP).

I use this presentation to familiarize students with their blended learning school environment.  This Prezi walks them through their online orientation course through our LMS, but also serves as a year-round reference for students to seek guidance and have their questions answered.  It allows me to edit and modify easily, as needed, without sending continuous updates.  It is user friendly and interactive, which allows for an effective blended learning resources/tool.

Engage students in a scavenger hunt where they can use phones or tablets (mobile app driven) to capture photos and videos proving they’ve solved one of the riddles. All artifacts get collected to a common dashboard for review. Students join teams and compete for points! Great for getting students to engage in teams with the world around them. Use this on field trips to engage students with what they see in a museum, the zoo, etc.
