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).

Learning looks like students engaged in something that interests them. It looks like a variety of things going all over the classroom. Perhaps it’s an art project in one part of the room, video editing in another, and some students cutting up magazines for a collage on another. Controlled chaos is the best environment for learning.
