Hey you gamification educators!
I was wondering if anyone would like to collaborate with me on a subject-specific math iBook for 5th graders? I am specifically looking for someone to create a math game using Edge Animate that could be converted into a widget and can be used within my new book on fractions, decimals and exponents. If desired, maybe more than one... It would be very cool if one of your students were able to do it! What a great way to get these young kids interested in the field of gamification.
Making games within content books is a great way to keep kids focused and on task because it stimulates their curiosity and makes it fun for them.

Using creativity for project-based learning brings digital tools into the daily curriculum for core subjects. Long term mastery of concepts and an increase in imagination in projects are the results with higher achievement for students.
I believe this can no longer be considered as an option for teaching and learning, but MUST become the standard in education.
How can this mentality become integrated into core subject areas, and how can we promote this to our administration? Is it simply all about the Benjamins?
