Engaging learners is a difficult task. They are constantly confronted with distractions and demands on their time. So how can we create instruction that pulls learners into the content and helps them gain the knowledge required to be successful? How do we grab and hold a learner's attention? How do we motivate them to engage with the content we are teaching? Participate in this session and engage in solving this mystery in this interactive, presentation.
Based on the bestselling book, The Gamification of Learning and Instruction, at the highly viewed Lynda.com course on gamification (lynda.com/karlkapp), this session includes many examples of using game-elements, game-thinking, and gamification to engage and motivate learners.
And, yes, you will play a polling game in this session. Discover firsthand how research-based practices and game-thinking are used to engage learners, increase learning, and lead to performance driven results.
