In my last post I talked about all the reasons I wanted to gamify my classroom in the upcoming school year. But perhaps I should be skeptical of this "trend" in education. Later this summer, I plan to present to the Education Committee about why I would like to add a course fee for a Learning Management System (LMS) that helps manage gamification in the classroom. I have a feeling they are going to be skeptical about this idea (the course fee and gamification).
-If you have experience with gamification, what were some of the questions/concerns people had when you tried to implement it?
-Play the devil's advocate, why are you skeptical about gamification?
-If you don't like the idea, what are some reasons I should just say "no" to gamification?
I very much appreciate your input.
