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).

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.
