Week 9 Reflection

This week I finally came up with a theme, “Monster’s Inc.” I was struggling before because I wanted something that was similar to Class Dojo (and I’m not talking about the monsters J), I’m referring to how students can be rewarded based on their knowledge of the content, in a game based situation. Just like in Class Dojo where students are rewarded on positive behavior, in Monster’s Inc. students would be rewarded based on Marzano’s learning scale. I got the idea from Larissa’s blog entry, her theme is Ice Age. I read in Mariah’s post that sometimes when we play games, we struggle with students’ just playing games, and worry if they are actually learning the content. Now because of gamification we can enjoy both in our classrooms.
