ClassCraft

on Thu May 24, 2018 9:56 pm
One of the more interesting learning systems I've encountered over recent years is called "ClassCraft." It's a classroom mangement system that was inspired by online games like "World of Warcraft." Their website describes the tool like this:

"Classcraft is a free online, educational role-playing game that teachers and students play together in the classroom. By using many of the conventions traditionally found in games today, students can level up, work in teams, and earn powers that have real-world consequences. Acting as a gamification layer around any existing curriculum, the game transforms the way a class is experienced throughout the school year."


For this activity, give a short review of the tool. Visit the website at http://www.classcraft.com. If you want, you can sign up for a free demo account. After you've investigated it a bit, what are your impressions? What do you find intriguing? What are you skeptical about? More pointedly, this was a tool designed for K-12 education...do you see any promise for Higher Education classes? Is it something you'd endorse for college professors? Be explicit in your review, but don't make this overly long...it's a discussion post, after all.
Responses to posts here will count towards your expected Discussion Responses.
