Gamification in the Classroom!
My students need a TV, TV Wall Mount, a speaker system, and an Apple TV to assist with gamifying my classroom.
Have you ever played a video game? Have you ever gotten the high score? That is what I am trying to achieve in my classroom. I am in the process of converting my history class into a video game. In order to do this, I need to display a leader board. That is what this project is all about!
I teach 7th grade history to students in a suburban school in Pennsylvania.
They love hands-on, project-based learning, which is exactly what this project would bring to them. The students love to try new things, especially when it comes to learning in an inquiry-based, hands-on way.
By providing my students and me with this TV, TV Wall Mount, Speaker system, and Apple TV, we could project a leader board during my class and students could be notified in real-time when they gain points or lose points. I have already started using a leader board in my classroom and the students LOVE it! However, we cannot project it all of the time because we do not have a way to display it. This project will help us do this. If funded, I will be able to use this setup with my current students and future students as well.
All students love the feel and excitement that video games bring to the player.
For this reason, I have been trying to convert my history class into a video game. So far, my students love this idea. It just needs to go to the next level. With your support, my students will be able to participate in class and see their scores on the leader board change in real-time" Please help us level-up!
