Must-listen for any educator

Well Played is an amazing podcast about bringing back joy, wonder, and excitement into the classroom. While many episodes are about Gamification, and some might skip over this Podcast thinking it doesn’t apply to them, that would be a mistake. Every teacher, instructional coach, and administrator could benefit from the use of some types of game mechanics in their job. This DOES NOT mean playing games all the time. Rather, the simple addition of mechanics such as time, team, or theme can easily be applied to almost any lesson with benefits to student learning. Check out Well Played; you’ll be glad you did!

Great podcast!

I am listening through many of the episodes and am picking up so many new ideas, tips and encouragement. Great for teachers just thinking about gamification or teachers already in the process and looking for new ideas.

Ramp Up your Teacher Game!

This is the best podcast for learning about gamification in the classroom. Each week Michael & his guest talk about practical ways to add game mechanics to the classroom to bring joy & adventure to learning. I look forward to these inspiring conversations each week, I know you will too.
