We began this process by creating a storyline. The Slideshow below has a short video that explains our storyline.
This is the individual component of our gamified classroom. Students can earn badges in all subject areas. In addition, they have the ability to earn badges for completing "jobs" at home. As students accumulate badges, they are able to level up.
Quests and Bonus Quests
We wanted to have a team component to our game so we added quests. XP is awarded for weekly quests. In addition to our regular weekly quests, we added bonus quests. These are extra opportunities for teams to earn additional XP.
