Teachers and Administrators

Using games in class to engage learners is not a new thing. I am sure most of us have played a review game of Jeopardy. What is new is the recent developments in our field with integrating technology and games in better ways to engage learners. Think about a game of review Jeopardy. What percentage of your students are actually engaged in reviewing the content? Do you ever have a team that falls so far behind they give up?

Well, tabletop games integrated in the right way can make for an excellent game-based learning lesson, review lesson, or as a way to incorporate gamification the right way in your classroom or at your school.
