I look for class days where I can decompress material and review. Enter gamification, not a new concept but one relatively recently applied to education.
The Multiplayer Classroom: Designing Coursework as a Game
I introduced games into my classes with the Jeopardy Powerpoint template. I have also been able to adapt several board games such as Pictionary, Apples to Apples and Clue to review class materials. I was recently introduced to a book that really attracted my attention.
Frankly, the book had me at Star Trek. But I was also intrigued by the idea of turning the classroom into a multiplayer game without needing a video game platform.
Sheldon takes gaming concepts from the world of multiplayer fantasy games and redesigns his courses accordingly, an amazing application of team-based learning. Grades are assigned based on the XP accumulated by each student. According to Mr.
Sheldon, this method of learning offers rewards for success rather than punishment for failure. Sheldon has a bachelor of fine arts degree in stage directing from Boston University , and an MFA in film direction from California Institute of the Arts. During his time as a student at CalArts, he was mentored under Alexander Mackendrick. In addition, he had two pairs of mentors while he was a writer and producer in television — Ron Austin and Jim Buchanan, as well as William Link and Richard Levinson.
