Tech Talk Roundtable 06-08 | Student Designed Gamification


Already this season you’ve heard us talk about Game Design and Gamificiation, well today we’re Kickin’ it up a notch and sharing how students are taking ownership of their learning by designing their own “gamified” learning experiences. When students design their own learning experiences you know you’ve got something special.

Lessons Learned

Daniel –  Experimenting with vertical video for Instagram editing in Final Cut Pro  – Larry Jordan

Dennis – Augmented Reality helping elementary student learn about Erosion.
