Interested to hear how teachers/schools are using gamification in schools, particularly in reading?

    Beginning to use some game elements in my classroom. Kahoot is a good one. Have used some gaming elements in Maths also.

    Have used Kahoot as a way of gamifying reading. Once a group have finished reading their book (all are reading the same novel) they create a Kahoot game with comprehension questions about the novel. It works well as they have to think carefully about the type of questions they create for their peers to answer. They love the competitive aspect as well.

    Our students recently used Kahoot in RE also when we had another school visiting. Great activity with a lot of students as they can collaborate over the answers.
