    I also use them to guide my units and get anonymous opinions on what activities Ss enjoy and what S want out of class #espechat

    I use them with 3-5 #espechat

    Would you need a specific Plickers app? #espechat

  • PhysEdDepot Sep 12 @ 8:14 PM EDT
    Alright #espechat dropping Q2!

    A6) I have seen this termed used a lot....can you define "Gamification" for me or give me an example? #espechat

  • PhysEdApps - Moderator Sep 12 @ 8:46 PM EDT
    A6) I would say I've had a modified version of gamification. Used Stickers for Ss when they could demo understanding. #espechat

    We talk a lot about being patient and it being easy if you know it & hard if you don't, and that everyone learns in their own time #espechat

    A6 part 2: Gamification is built in assessment, growth mindset, and a great engagement getter for non-participants. #espechat
  • smsandino Sep 12 @ 8:47 PM EDT
    A6 I've used the aspects of levels and leveling up, I can't say I've used it in its entirety #espechat
  • MrRoosPE Sep 12 @ 8:47 PM EDT
    Yes. Maybe 120 of 430 last year. They get it. Just be clear and think about those students when you write the questions. #espechat

    A6: gamification is using the best parts of video games in a real life activity like education or consumerism for engagement. #espechat
  • CoachAnberg Sep 12 @ 8:48 PM EDT
    Works really well and there are some great images/gifs out there you can use. #espechat

    A6 we have begun to use the term "level up" and there is an instant charge in the room. The Ss already know what that means🙃#espechat

    A6: also used the leveling up concept such as Jump Rope Ninja. I really see increased buy-in when activities are gamified. #espechat

    Dumping out Q7 which is tied to Q6, may help give more ideas as we wind down on time a bit: #espechat
