Classcraft - Gamifying the Classroom For Better Engagement and Discipline

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Classcraft is a tool that educators can use to improve both student engagement and discipline in the classroom. Modeled after the video games that students love to play, the immersive management tool allows teachers to shape wanted and unwanted behaviors in the classroom. Students can earn XP for good behaviors and outcomes (allowing them to level up and unlock cool new things) and lose HP for unwanted behaviors - which could result in falling in battle and receiving a teacher-created sentence. Teachers can tailor this management tool to fit their particular class and use the features like Random Events and Wheel of Destiny to improve student engagement. Plus - it's fun!
