Is anyone using aspects of gamification successfully in their classroom? I am interested in how effective it is for motivating primary aged boys for a Teacher Inquiry Project. Your thoughts would be much appreciated.

    Hi Tracy,

    In terms of gamification do you mean using game design elements in a non-gaming context as described by Deterding, Dixon, Khaled and Nacke (2011)? Or more the use of IT tools in a gaming context?  If you mean the later, I have just finished a literature review for Mindlab on the subject of how gamification affects student engagement that I can share with you.  I am also completing a teacher inquiry on this at the moment and am looking at implementing it next term.  

    Let me know what you need. :)

    Hi Darren smiley

    Do you mind me asking as to why you would question whether gamification should be used in the classroom?  I would love a different perspective as most of my readings have been pro-gamification.
