Makerfication! How Blended Making and Gaming Can Enhance Student Centered Learning by Encouraging Students to Actively Problem Solve, Collaborate, and Think Critically

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

Makerfication is a look into how gamification and the maker movement can together help enhance engagement in the classroom and increase excitement in PBL. In the spirit of making, the audience will be divided into teams and given a challenge to make something collaboratively with the given set of rules, while also scoring as many points as possible. The team with the most points in the challenge will win.
