Adding the ‘Game Layer’ to classrooms

Class Dojo is a fantastic web and mobile based app to allow students to rack up virtual points. A must-have in any 21st Century classrooms for younger students.

Additionally, ClassCraft has recently been unleashed! This turns any classroom into a role playing game and uses key gamification to increase engagement and motivation in older students.

Both technologies have inbuilt functionality to allow for any teacher to keep parents in the loop of how their children are getting on. Meaningful reporting in realtime!

Flipping Great Tools!

There is no need to reinvent the wheel when flipping the classroom. Lots of people around the world have already done it and, in certain areas of school, people are already using these tools for learning!

Graphite – a resource review site for learning technologies by Common Sense Media. For Teachers by Teachers!

MindShift – an ambitious organisation with big ideas for games, technology and learning.
