12 Days of Blended Learning: Day 5

This is the fifth post in a series of twelve on blended learning.

Day 5: Gamification

One of the hardest parts about a self-paced, blended learning classroom is motivating students to continue working. One of the ways I motivate my students is by using gamification. Gamification is the process of making an environment that is not typically a game into a game by adding game elements to everyday tasks.


To gamify, I use the website www.classcraft.com  This site makes it VERY easy to gamify a class without the teaching having to worry about designing all the components of the game. If you're curious check out the following blog posts to learn more:
