Description

Gamification should be thought of as a design sensibility and not merely a digital tool. It is a thought process and a methodology to think about engaging and motivating learners.  While a result of gamification is often fun, the ultimate outcome behind developing a gamified approach is increased engagement and motivation.  
 
In this webinar, explore several methods for applying game-thinking to your own online and classroom learning designs.
