“Gamify It: PD and Classroom Challenge Activities”

We are excited to welcome two exemplary elementary teachers, Jessie McKinley (music) and Stacy Aguilar (gifted 4th grade), as our special guest presenters in this week's webinar! Jessie and Stacy are teachers in Camelview School, Madison Elementary School District in Phoenix, AZ. They have collaborated to implement a very creative concept using challenge activities that provide a model that is working in both professional learning for teachers and learning in the classroom for students. Join us to learn about this project and to hear their stories and experiences about gamifying these learning opportunities.

Webinar description:
Gamification has hit our school in an innovative way! Listen as two educator’s from Phoenix AZ describe how professional development for educators is building skills and community, and how it metamorphosed into a model for students to also achieve above and beyond what is taught in the regular lesson. We hope what we share will give inspiration to you to implement some gaming ideas to make education fun again!
