On July 30, Game On, a new WordPress plugin from the Mac Lab, made its debut at the 2013 Adobe Education Leader Institute at Adobe's Corporate Headquarters in San Jose, CA.
WordPress + Game On = our newest Gamified Curriculum Delivery System.
GameOn has been completely rewritten from the ground up to be a lean, clean gamification engine with less reliance on third party plugins.
Anyone using the CubeGold plugin first developed in Gamified Curriculum Delivery System and further modified in FTW! Turnkey Online Gamification System might consider moving to our new system. (CubeGold will continue to function, it just won't be updated with new features.)
From installation and configuration to implementation and data collection, Game On is a far simpler, more powerful, and more efficient gamification option than CubeGold.
In 2011/12, we first gamified the classroom using Google Forms. In 2012/13, we won an Inspire Award from the Classroom of the Future Foundation for our work with CubeGold. In 2013/14, the game gets serious.
NOTE: Due to the large number of comments (over 1,000) this resource has grown too sluggish to endure any longer. Hence the need for a second resource. Part II of our conversation is continued here.
