The latest book from ISTE can now be yours for free.
Michele Haiken, the author of Gamify Literacy (releasing April 30) and a Classcraft Ambassador, is giving away a signed copy of her new book, published by the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE).
Gamify Literacy highlights how gamification can boost literacy skills and foster collaboration. In the book, top educators and professionals share their tips, tools, and best practices for gamifying the classroom—covering topics such as badging, leaderboards for student motivation, Minecraft and role-playing for immersive content learning, and much more.
“Effective games are customized to different learners, and students are encouraged to take risks and seek alternative solutions to show what they know,” Haiken writes in the introduction. “In classrooms today, it’s not only about learning content material, students must experience and build the necessary skills to be creators, innovators, and problem-solvers in order to develop critical thinking and improve academic achievement.”
