Game On v4: Alpha Testers Wanted
In May of 2011, I asked students in each of my classes, "Who wants to help me figure out how to gamify our classroom?"
That fall we began our journey using Google Sheets coupled with my WordPress site. Even with a student's ingeniously conceived auto-populating leaderboard, the process was just too painful for words. In January of 2012, I asked the two kids in this video to work on a WordPress plugin.
In the fall of 2012, they delivered and we introduced Game On v1 to the world.
This year, Mick McMurray of Mount Miguel High School brought his problem-solving and coding prowess to the table and now we are on the brink of releasing the most exciting Game On experience since the original—just in time for the 2018/19 school year.
Alpha Testers Wanted
Note: The plugin won't be available until sometime during the summer. A WordPress MultiSite install will serve as our testing environment (nothing for you to install). For a little more background information, see the Game On v3 Discussion.
We hope to have the WPMS up and running in a week or two. (No pressure, Mick.)
